crochet work in progress: bags and cases

hello!!

we are already halfway through the week and it is time to show the projects i’m working on the last few days. hope you like to take a look at the photos 🙂

 

the yarn i crochet with is “scheepjes stonewashed XL”, a mix of 70% cotton with 30% acrylic. scheepjes is a dutch label and the yarn is beautiful. i’m using crochet hook 5.0 mm and work pretty tight because i want to make a firm fabric which will keep the bags in better shape while carry more weight.

 

 

projects in the works crochet bags and cases

 

 

 

different colors 

the black with yellow stripes, will be a fold-over bag, one of the two small cases i like to use as a makeup bag and/or to hold other smaller things i always carry around with me.  the mesh bag i want to keep pretty small, because i – also – want to put it in the fold-over bag for unexpected buys so i can avoid plastics.

 

 

the two cases that you see on the pictures are for a crocheter who has hooked before, easy to make. if you like to have some explanations how to make them please write me a comment. i am not talking about a pattern or tutorial, just the explanations. you can write a comment below until 45 days after today 🙂

 

 

 

this was it for today, i love to join ginny’s yarn along at small things !

 

until next time!
