Swag Bag - Crochet Handles

Hello All,
Well...I must admit I really enjoy making these bags. This time I modified the bag by adding a crochet handle instead of the round bamboo handle.

To do this I followed the instructions given here
This was a really fun project. I'm sure I'll be trying it again.
I also decided to make a cute little bag for my niece to wear to church this past Sunday.


It was just several rows of half double crochets and I single crocheted the sides together. It has a black lining to match the flower.
Happy Krafting!

Another Crochet Swag Bag

Hello All...

Well, I must admit...this whole crochet thing has become my latest obsession. I have made about 6 bags in the last 10 days. They are just so easy and I love the way they turn out. Once again I used the tutorial from One Virtuous Woman and this time I used the Read Heart Team Spirit yarn.
Since most on New Orleans is obsessed with LSU and The Saints I started with LSU. I know the yarn photographs blue but it's actually purple.
I Love it!
Happy Krafting!

Crochet Handbags!

Hello All,
I decided to give this blogging thing another try :-).
As you can probably tell, I love "ALL THINGS CRAFT"! Which is why my posts range from paper crafts to embroidery, to sewing, to my latest thing...crochet! I have been busily watching tutorials pn how to make these adorable crochet handbags. I absolutele love them but more than that I LOVE how quick they are to make. INSTANT GRATIFICATION AT ITS BEST!
Both of these bags were from One Virtuous Woman on YouTube. Check out her website  HERE
The first is called a granny bottom bag and it's super easy! This one take quite a bit of yarn, however.

 The second one (and my personal favorite) is called the swag bag and it is also super easy. It only requires one skein of yarn (Red Heart Super Saver) and it works up really quickly!

I loved making these and I KNOW I'll be making more! Check out the link above if you wanna give it a try.
Happy Krafting!
