I have ventured into foreign territory….hand bags.  After competing the Belmont Sun Hat http://katidcreations.com/belmont-sun-hat/  I decided that my daughter really needed to go with the hat was a hand bag.

I decided that I would line the bag to give it that nice finished look.  I ended up doing a double lining, the outside is just a basic tweed but on the inside I added a splash of color.  I saw this fabric in the remnants and fell in love!  Don’t get intimidated by the lining!  I am no where close to an experienced sewer and it took me just under an hour to get the lining ready to be attached to the crochet bag.

This bag works up really quickly!!  Which is great because what fun is making something so cute if you have to work on it for hours before you can use it!?

Attaching Handles to large bag, I am not able to be specific with spacing as there are several different styles and sizes of handles.
With Right Side of Bag Facing
First Handle:
Join around any Base Chain (where the first SC row was crochet, if you just go in a loop of the CH it will stretch really easily), CH1^, SC in same as joining and next 3 stitches (or as many stitches as needed for the available space),* CH1, turn, SC in next 4 stitches*, repeat from *to* 6 more times, CH1 (or until necessary length is reached to get strap through hole in handle with enough to attach back to bag).  Stick strap threw hole in handle from front of bag to the back of bag.  Insert hook in both loops on last row of strap and in back loops of first row of strap, SS, continue across next 3 stitches.

Finish off.
Lay bag flat and find proper placement for second hole.  You could leave a bit of slack between the handle so it will fit up on your shoulder. Repeat for second hole on Handle

Second Handle:
Again lay bag flat, placing the finished handle in center of bag, having equal amount of extra on both sides of the bag.  Find the stitches that correspond and start your Second Handle.
Join with CH in next stitch, follow directions for First Handle from ^ on.

 

Lining the Bag can be found at –  http://katidcreations.com/double-lining/

I simply found two kinds of fabric I liked, tried to make sure that they had a bit of durability and were not too thin.  I used an off white tweed for the outside of the lining and for the inside lining I simply looked through the pre-cut quilt pieces.  After I finished, I placed the completed lining inside of the crochet bag, pinned it and then taking a sewing needle and some thread I stitched the lining to the crochet bag.

  1. I am going to make several of these bags for Christmas gifts!!!

    • Im sure those girls are going to love you! If you have any questions just ask!

    • It is less than a skein. But exact amount I don’t know, sorry. I used Loops & Thread Impeccable 268yards/4.5 oz and had some left over.

  2. The bag is nice for girls and adults I will make 1for me crochet handle and one for my 3yr granddaughter LuzKarina

  3. I made then and my neighbors grand daughter will be very special on Easter thanks we are both happy I love to see kids happy I give most of my stud away to less fortunate thanks

  4. I would like to make handles for the large do you have a pattern for it or just use small pattern and judge size?

    Thanks

    • Use the handles for the small one, and you can of course increase the length of the handle. Simply space them evenly.

  5. I’m definitely going to be making some of these ~ some for me, some for daughters & granddaughters ~ because they’re so cute & practical! I like wearing hats, but get so hot! Do you have to use the specified yarn or can any yarn be used? I have a stash & would like to use some of it up.

    • You can use any that you like, just make sure the gauge matches up so it fits appropriately

  6. You’re so welcome! It’s the least I can do when you’ve provided this beautiful pattern!

  7. I just finished making this bag for my 2 yr. old daughter with the matching sun hat. They both work up really quick. Each one took 2-3 hours. Only took one skein of super saver yarn & I still have a little less than a half of skein left. Love the patterns. I will be making more in different colors. Thank you!!!
