My name is Luz Mendoza and I am originally from Spain, from the beautiful Island of Tenerife, I moved to the UK over 17 years ago and live in London with my better half a wonderful english man and my three children, a boy and identical twin girls. I crochet, knit, sew, cook, bake and eat, laugh, play, hug, kissâ€¦ basically I am in love with life!
I have decided to write the crochet patterns that are mostly inspired by my kids, sometimes it is what I think they need or like and sometimes it is just a plain request!, â€˜mummy can you make me aâ€¦â€™ the best part is to see their faces when I gave them something that I have made, â€˜mummy, you made it for me?â€™, I love it!, I hope you enjoy my patterns to. Happy Crocheting!
Leather handle carry all bag crochet purse pattern 178
I am passionate about upcycling, recycling, refashion or whatever you want to call it!, I just can't stand seeing perfectly good items being thrown away!. I see old belts, jeans, T-shirts, bedding... as materials, fabric with which to make something new!, I had the belt for a long time, loved it, used it for long and got bored with it, so it has been in my little craft corner's drawers awaiting for something to inspire me. And here it is! the bag is fully lined with inside pockets and a flap, big enough to carry all the items you will need through the day.
I have marked this pattern as easy, beginners although you will need to know to do front post half double crochet.
15 1/2 (39.5 cm) inches wide by 12 inches (30.5 cm) tall, and 4 inches (10cm) deep. The handle has a 24 inches () drop, but you can adjust this to your own preference.
400 g (around 600 meters) Of Yeoman yarns cotton mix Aran weight, similar yarn for this project will be Lili Sugar n Cream 4 ply cotton, you will need between 8 or 9 balls for this project.
Crochet hook H (5 mm)
A few yards of a contrasting colour, I choose brown Cotton DK (light worsted weight) and a hook G (4 mm) to finished the opening of the bag.
I lined the bag with a cotton fabric, and made an double inside pocket as well, you will need 2 squares of 20 inches (51cm) of fabric.
A leather belt or leather handles, I found a few suppliers on Etsy, check these guys out:
And a button for the closure.
Optional, fabric marker and sewing machine or sewing needle, thread for the lining and pins.
