This crossbody bag is a one-skein project. I love one skein projects. This bag was made using Bernat Home Decor yarn. I love the stitch definition that this yarn provides and how this is perfect for a Macrame inspired bag like this one. The pattern also tells you how to add a lining so your bag would be more sturdy and won't stretch and sag. This bag is the perfect size to hold your keys, wallet and a bottle of water.
"A simple, useful thing of beauty. Thoughts of carefree days. Of travels. Of adventures. A cool sip of water on a hot day. Meet the lovely Crochet Water Bottle Holder. Because, really, any time you’re adventuring you might need a sip of water from a bottle you’d like to carry with you. On a hike maybe or to a park. The strap is perfect for throwing over your shoulder or wearing it cross body style–which is my personal favorite. The water bottle cover is worked in cotton worsted weight yarn, the kind often used for dishcloths. You might even have some yarn in your stash for the project! Let’s dive in!"
"This pattern was designer by a guest designer through Joy of Motion Crochet. The Sandy Crossbody Tote is the perfect on-the-go stylish tote. Throw a couple of water bottles and a pair of sunglasses in it for a quick visit to the park with your kiddos. Throw your wallet and coupons in it for a jaunt up to the craft store. Toss in a book and a bottle of sunscreen and hit the beach. This tote would even make a beautiful date night bag. If you are worried about small bits like lipstick or other odds and ends, then grab a stylish little zipper pouch to put those little bits in and toss it into your Sandy Crossbody Tote."
This Making Waves water bottle holder is a fun and fashionable way to carry around your water bottle. It stretches to fit a variety of sized bottles. Peepholes in the center let you see if you are running low and need to replenish. It's a great way to keep you hydrated on your summertime outdoor adventures!
"This Jagged Crochet Water Bottle Holder Pattern uses the Jagged Crochet Stitch. This stitch I discovered while playing around with yarn and it seems to work best in the round! If you'd like to learn how to make it in rows successfully you can check out my Jagged Stitch Scrap Yarn Afghan pattern."
