Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • single crochet
  • working in the round
  • crocheting loosely

Pattern Description:

This pattern began life when an online buddy of mine requested a "large, sturdy bag, with good handles, yet still girlie". The bag is felted, with double handles (sturdy), and comes in three different sizes so you can make the right size for you.

This was originally a crochetalong on my Ravelry group, for lots of inspiration please visit:


Use only 100% wool, NOT SUPERWASH, acrylic, cotton, etc., or the bag will NOT felt. Directions for felting are included.

Photos: brown shows the large version, long handles, using vintage fabric for the trim. Red shows the small version, short handles, with 1" wide ribbon for trim.

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.
