String Bag #1

I am so excited to be involved in Emily and Dawn’s String-a-Long Challenge. I finally got my first bag finished last night and here it is. I used the Econo-Shopper Mesh Bag pattern over on Ravelry. I must admit, that I used the pattern for the main mesh part and then tweaked the handles as I preferred them flipped on the other sides. It wasn’t too hard, I just kind of figured it out as I went. I just recently found this pattern for the brooch, and can I just say I absolutely adore it (but more on that later). Once I got the hang of it, it was really easy to whip out. I’m not sure which pattern I’ll use next, but I’m going to have fun figuring it out. If anybody knows of any crochet string bag patterns, I would love to check them out. Sorry these recent posts are kind of short and to the point, still nursing my family back to health. Knock on wood, but I think the end is in sight.

    Vanessa, this bag is deceptively easy. I was a little nervous too before I made it, but it’s basically a big rectangle that you stitch around the edges to cinch up and make handles. It is much easier than it looks.

    Thanks Mousy Brown, can’t wait to see your next bag too. πŸ™‚

    The bag looks great, hope mine looks as good when it’s finished, which it nearly is. Glad to hear your family are all starting to feel better.

  7. Hi! That’s a really fab bag – I shall have a look for the pattern on Ravelry. Thanks for using my flower pattern and for being so enthusiastic about it – it’s always a real boost to me that people like it.
