Pattern Description:

Fruity Fun shoulder bag.

A super easy, super quick pattern for a fruity themed bag, just change the colors you use to change the fruit! This bag is crocheted using clarn (cloth yarn) and is so soft and tactile, yet sturdy and practical too. Included with the pattern are full instructions for easily creating your own clarn out of old clothes or bedding. A really neat way to recycle old (or new) fabrics.

This pattern uses a size N/15 (10mm) crochet hook so it really does work up fast. A great project for beginners or experienced crocheters alike. Full photographic illustrations of key stages of this bags metamorphosis from rags to riches are included to be used alongside the written pattern.

You will also need a large decorative button and an optional large snap fastener (press stud).

Finished bag measures 14" (36cm) wide and 8" (21cm) deep (not including handle) and has a handy interior pocket to keep all your essentials organized.
