My name is Anastacia, and I am the scrap yarn/one skein queen. I buy my yarn mainly at yard sales/thrift stores, so I got used to making do with what I could find. So most of my patterns are designed to use up the odd skeins or leftovers in your life, and are geared towards beginner crocheters or those who just want a fast, easy, but still pretty item.
I'm a 30 something adult living in MA. Iâ€™m married, have a wonderful cat named Wedgie, & I work full time. I also teach knitting & crocheting at my local Michael's & squeeze in designing as many hours as I can a week.
I do love to hear from everyone, but please remember that I am busy, just like you, & will reply as soon as I can.
All of my patterns use USA terms & abbreviations.
I try to layout my patterns as simply as possible to save money for people printing at home. My patterns are as short as possible, usually with only one photo on the first page, which you can easily skip printing to save ink.
At the Beach Bag is a fun crochet bag that any crocheter can make!
This is a bag written for 3 sizes, that can be used as a purse when lined (lining instructions not included), a market bag or a tote bag. It's crocheted from the bottom up, the base worked in rows and the body of the bag worked in rounds and turned after each round is completed. Worked in Red Heart Super Saver, this bag is not only cheap to make, but very durable and of course machine washable!
My testers pointed out the many great uses for this bag: from a reusable gift bag, to matching mommy / daughter bags, to a bag filled with items for a new mom.
There are also directions for two handles, short or long.
Measurements (does not include handle length):
Small 9.5" across by 8" high by 1.3" deep
Medium 12" across by 10" high by 1.5" deep
Large 14.5" across by 13" high by 1.7" deep
Materials: Red Heart Super Saver, amounts shown below plus 50-100 grams for the handles, size G (4.00 mm) crochet hook
Small: 130 grams
Medium: 165 grams
Large: 250 grams
