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!
Wooden handle crochet purse bag, retro style colourful bag!
As soon as the sun stars shinning in the sky and the clouds open, we know the spring is in the air!. This year I am having a very modern look at some retro classics, I have upcycled these lovely wooden handles from a bag I bought in Greenwich Market a long time ago, thinking back I reckon I bought the bag because I loved the handles!. Anyway we had a terrible winter so I am all really to make a splash of happy colours with this bag!
My patterns are all written in standard american terms. I have marked this pattern as an intermediate level
I used Lily Sugar n Cream solids in Aran, you will need 1 ball of each: Hot blue, Hot orange, warm brown, Robin's egg(that is their light blue) and Sunshine (yellow).
Crochet hook H (5mm)
Wooden handles, I used a 7.5 inches wide (outer widest measurement), you can find a similar pair on Etsy or Ebay.
Because the thickness of the yarn, I used sewing thread and a sewing needle to stitch the bag together, it makes the seems a lot less bulkier.
