Going to the gym or on an overnight trip can still be as glamorous as going to the mall or on a date. This Duffel Purse Crochet Bag Pattern is such a unique take on a crochet tote bag pattern, and the handmade bag has such a nice mix of flowery charm and tough functionality, which is perfect for an on-the-go woman. This bag is a fairly easy crochet pattern, complete with crochet handles and seams. Even though its big enough to handle all the demands of a regular duffel bag, it doesn't have a clumsy, bulky appearance. The softness of the yarn will also keep all your valuables safe and un-scuffed.
The Clarissa Date Bag is a lovely bag to take on date night, to a church meeting, birthday party, or any other special occasions. The Clarissa Date Bag works up quickly with single crochet and single crochet back loop stitches. The bag measures approximately 10 1/2 wide x 12 high (excluding handles) and is crocheted with worsted weight 4 yarn and an H / 5 mm hook. I purchased the 6' black handles at Joann Fabrics.
Handbag handles can be finicky. You want to make them sturdy to avoid stretching or losing shape. Plus, you want them comfortable to sit on your shoulder or in your hand. This pattern will teach you how to crochet a handle in three different ways: braided handle, tube handle, and Tunisian handle. They're perfect as crochet handbag handles for your bag, tote, purse, and more.
"The Tricolor Tote has so many fun details - changing stitch patterns, fun tassels, braided handles - but its soft color palette and orderly structure bring balance to this fast and fun (and free!) crochet pattern! The Tricolor Tote was designed using Lion Brand Fast-Track, which is a really fun and unique yarn! Soft cotton/poly blend in a tape-like shape, it's like crocheting with your favorite t-shirts. And I love the look it gives projects! This tote is also another pattern on my never-ending search for the ideal bag handles. I've tried many different methods over the years, but I think this is the first time I've tried braids! This yarn lends itself really well to these braided handles, with only a tiny bit of stretch, lots of strength, and some great color play that ends in tassels! If this handle style isn’t to your taste, you can always add pre-purchased handles, or crochet your own using the linked tutorial!"
"Carry all of your essential items, create ease in shopping or take a trip to the beach with this gorgeous gingham crochet tote. Worked in two panels and seamed, this project is straight forward and has a lovely finish. This pattern is written in US terms. My swatch of 10 sc x 10 rows is approximately 2 ¼” by 2 ¼”. Height - Approximately 15 inches Width - Approximately 13 inches Handle - Approximately 13 inches high from tote to mid point on handle. I used approximately 3/4 of a skein of each color. Any medium(4) weight you prefer to use is fine, you do not have to use the colors I did. I used acrylic yarn, but you can use cotton if you prefer. Please keep in mind that this can change the dimensions of the bag. You can line this bag if you prefer, I decided not to."
