Crocheted Shell Striped Bag- Work in Progress Wednesday

I’ve been wanting to make some crocheted bags for a while now. There are so many fabulous bags out there, but I wanted to come up with some of my own. I just like knowing that it’s my creation from start to finish. So I finally envisioned this bag and began working on it Monday evening. I think I like it and the colors so far.



I plan to line it when I’m finished as well. If all turns out well and anyone in interested, I will try to write up the pattern as well.

The only thing I’m not happy with is that I see a seam where I join the rounds and begin the next round. How can I stop that?!



I love this bag!- made by you Monday

I like purses, though I’m not one to buy a bunch of them or a any other thing for that matter (except maybe yarn LoL). However, I don’t feel as bad about making them though! I haven’t made more than one for myself yet, but I enjoy making them for others. I just love all the adorable bags out there to make.


This bag in particular is a favorite of mine.


Sometimes I like to attach some cute flowers or a ribbon.

It’s based on  a lovely market bag pattern that I found over at Daisy Cottage Designs.  She has a wonderful blog for crochet!  I did adapt the pattern with the way I constructed the handles, and to make it larger as the pattern there was for a child-size bag (though I think that size is wonderful for adults too, depending on what you want to use it for).

I made one that I use as a purse sometimes.  Since it’s a market bag, it isn’t lined, so I just have to be careful that I don’t have anything small and loose in there.  I would love to figure out how to line these bags, but I seem challenged by round ones.  (I’m not a great sewer).  I have learned to line rectangular ones though 🙂

If you do not crochet and would like me to make you a bag, orders can be placed in my Etsy shop.
