Today I have a fun new Crochet Pattern to share with you! The Celestial Crossbody Bag is a quick and easy weekend project, not to mention a great accessory update!
I wanted to design a purse that had a unique shape and would go with anything. This little purse could easily be dressed up or down. Plus, it’s a fast enough project that you could make it in several colors to go with anything in your closet.
I wanted a durable yarn for this purse, so I chose fabric yarn. This yarn is great because it’s made from recycled fabric scraps. So it acts more like clothing than yarn, and it’s giving new life to what would’ve otherwise been trash. I like that is won’t fuzz out or get worn out the way regular yarn will, so it’s great for bags of any kind.
I got mine from We Are Knitters.* It’s called The Tape, and the best part is you only need one skein! So it’s easy to make two (or three…) This little purse would make a great gift! Who wouldn’t love a little round purse like this?
The purse comes with a long strap and I love that you could tie a knot in the end to make it shorter, so versatile. And no need to buy anything else for this project–it closes with a braided tassel that goes through a hole in the front, easy!
Be sure to tag me with your photos when you make your bag, I love to see them! @tealandfinch #tealandfinch
