Summer Stripes Bag

from Crochet Dynamite
(4) Name: 'Crocheting : Summer Stripes Bag
Summer Stripes Bag
Summer Stripes Bag

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should already know how to do basic crochet stitches (ie. single crochet, double crochet, slip stitch)
  • You should have very basic sewing skills (ie. running stitch, whipstitch)

Pattern Description:

The finished measurements for this purse are: 14" across x 8" high x 5" deep. The strap drop is 14".

I designed this striped bag thinking that it would be perfect for pretty much everything I want to do this summer. It's completely made of cotton, and it's not so big that I feel like I'm going to give myself back problems if a quick trip to Target ends up in a crazy adventure at Disneyland, or the beach, or detours into a fishing trip.
I was almost done with it, and then I sold it. Crazy! My sister was watching me finish up the strap and then offered me designer-purse money for it. She could buy Coach for the price she offered me. She is a handbag snob. That was when I knew that I should write it up as a pattern. The purse is really that cute. ;)

Hmm... Guess I'm going to have to make another one for my summer adventures... LOL!!!!
