I thought I would show you the progression of my crochet bag, purposely made as a shopper for the early morning trip to the bakers on my up coming holiday, started in this post here.
It is turning out a little larger than I was expecting but no going back now.
I was wondering about what type of handle to finish it of with.
I’ve settled on some large wooden hoops that I will incorporate into the sides of the bag. So after a few more rows I will start to form the circular cut out into which I will bind the hoops.
I thought the hoops might help the bag keep its structure with the added benefit of not involving further crochet!
I’ve ordered the handles off ebay this morning and left a crawly message for the seller pleading a quicker postage than the 5 days that is noted.
With only managing an hour (time constraints and finger cramp from the twine) or so each evening, I’m just on target to finish it to take away on holiday.
7 days and counting.
BTW I came across this huge number of vintage crochet bag patterns. It quite puts my shopper to shame!!
