Bags and Purses

Crocheted, Knitted and Knotted

There are so many times you need a bag - to put groceries in, for instance, or your knitting, or for library books.

Bags and Purses

Sprang, macrame, crochet and knitting are all great techniques for making a unique carry all. 

Install a zipper or a fabulous wooden button for a closure, a leather strap to carry it with, or a shaped wood handle, and you've got something no-one else has.

Scrap knitted bagScrap knitted bag - a great use of those leftover scraps of yarn

Test pieces that you've kept from other projects can be sewn together to make a fabulous 'Jacob's coat' type patchwork bag. Aim for the same size in one direction, and similar weight for the best effect.

Why not make it something hand made, by you, and be proud of your creativity?
