Finished Crochet Bag

I have finished my first ever crochet bag.  I really enjoyed making it and learnt so much as I was going along.  I am amazed at how much sense crochet is starting to make to me.   Now I understand what all the fuss is about and why it is so addictive.  I am itching to start the next one, especially now I know what I would do better/differently.

The bag is a bit on the small side but still very handy.
I know how to reduce width and how to keep the strap
a bit neater for next time.
I love the wide/fat bands on the lower middle section  I was
trying to do Granny stitch but ended up with this
pretty stitch that looks quite lacy, maybe it is called Lace Stitch?


  1. Not sure I can help you with the stitches, but it has such pretty colours!

  2. It's really pretty! I like the combination of different stitches :-)

  3. Your bag looks really great, and amazing as a first project. I can't crochet at all, but would probably start with an egg cosy.

  4. BRAVO!!!
    ... and you winged it? Marvellous indeedy.
    (I want one!!)

  5. Great bag,,,,I want some feedback on how it wears - I once made one and the strap stretched really badly so interested to hear how yours goes!

  6. You are doing so much better than me as a beginner. I've been crocheting for a very long time and there are still patterns and stitches that stump me. But I do love the process of crocheting. Very soothing and therapeutic. Best wishes, Tammy
