Did I mention I love bags? Well, I couldn’t help making this one and I am very pleased with how it turned out. I will be making more in different colours…..and maybe even mixing colours up a bit 🙂
The free pattern can be found at : http://www.thelavenderchair.com/daisy-fields-beach-bag-crochet-pattern/
TIP: While the pattern calles for a chunky cotton yarn, if you like, you can also crochet this using two strands of DK acrylic – and a 6.5mm hook. It will take amost 4 x 50g balls.
TIP 2: I cut out a piece of cardboard in the shape of the base of the bag (from a shoe box , which I was going to throw away), covered it nice fabric, and put it in the bag. That way, the base stays flat. It is not sewn in so you can easily remove it before washing the bag.
