Here's a bag I created recently....


I crocheted a large circle using some funky yarns, then folded it in half like a soft shell taco, I crocheted oval shaped side pieces so it had more depth to stash stuff inside.
The handles were crocheted on in the last round of the circle

Happy Crocheting!!

Wow! I love it. I especially love the colours/textures of yarn together. Amazing!

And hoping for an early death you swam so far you lost your breath, and struggling in the ebb and flow I took your hand, but you let go...
And now the ocean fills your lungs, and now you've got what you had come for, resting peaceful as you sink to drown under a sea of strangers.

Thanks for the feedback gals!!

Eakircher- I used half double crochet to attach the handles...after i looped over, and inserted, I held the handle at the back and trapped it under the st

this is a great project for using up scraps as well

OH MY GOD, I LOVE THIS PURSE!!!  Sorry for all of the caps, but I'm really excited!  What a great idea.  I love making circles but never know what to do with them.  And what a great way to get rid of scrap yarn!.  Thank you for posting this!

I've been trying to find a hand-bag pattern that I liked - and your crocheted one is wonderful.
The problem is that I don't have such interesting scraps as you do/did.

Great work!
