Fat Bottom Bag
Tutorial instructions for this amazing bag are below. I’ve sewn a lot of bags in the past but haven’t crocheted anything with handles! So when I saw these handles at my local Lens Mill store, I couldn’t resist a project! I saw a pattern on Ravelry that I loved, but it was only in print so I looked around online and found some great instructions that I followed. My step-by-step process is detailed in this post for you.
- 5 mm crochet hook
- Worsted weight yarn (I used Bernat Super Value in Plum Mist Heather)
- Tapestry needle
- Lining fabric, mine was some leftover polka dot lightweight cotton
- Thread (I used white and purple)
- Purse handles (mine are wooden ovals, would work just as well with circles)
And voila! A pretty awesome bag! Note that the first time I constructed it, I accidentally sc’ed up the sides between the handles, so when I finished the bag it wouldn’t actually open. Oops!
The finished bag is 12″ wide by 8″ tall. A great size for a multi-function bag! I’d love to see your finished projects so link them in the comments below.
