HOW TO MAKE CROCHETED BAG || ANNOUNCING THE WINNERS OF OUR GUESSING GAME

It's been a while since I wasn't able to post here and my WIPs were still stuck in the corner waiting for their right time. I wasn't able to participate in the remaining days of the WIPs challenge because of some loads that occupied my time from doing it. Custom orders that need to finish as soon as possible, and doing house chores that includes preparing and sending the children to school. It seems like no matter how early I wake up and late to sleep, yet, it feels like I can never get them all done. If only I could stretch out the time to fit all these tasks that need to be completed, I would have already done that.

And since I was missing this community so bad, I would like to share with you this crocheted bag tutorial that I was able to save the pictures months ago and was really planning of sharing it here.

So without further ado, let's begin this crocheted bag tutorial.

Materials:

Unfortunately, I don't have a picture here of the materials I used before but these are as follows:

  • 12ply spun poly-cotton
  • 3mm crochet hook
  • scissor
  • 2 plastic loops of about 1 inch in diameter
  • fabric for bag lining
  • Needle
  • Zipper

Procedures:

My customer only wanted a rectangular shoulder bag, a stiffer one and just let me choose what kind of stitch I would be using.

I don't want to use all double crochet so I decided to choose the alphine stitch. If you want to know how an alphine stich done, just look for a tutorial in Youtube. 🤗

First, I made two crocheted rectangular shapes (with the same pattern I used with the other rectangle) that will serve as the front and back of our bag and also a smaller rectangle (same measurement of its length) that will serve also as the base.

Next, I connect their ends using the single crochet.

After connecting them, I make another layer of single crochet surrounding the whole bag.

Next, I just made decreasing double crochet as I go upward to serve as the sides of our bag. And made another single crochet to define its sides as what you see in the above picture. I was really having a hard time making this part and it take me 3-4 times to redo it all over again. But then, I was satisfied with the result.

Then I made single crochet that will surround these plastic loops to be attached to the sides of the bag and its straps using a big needle.

And before I attached the zipper to the bag, I sew the cloth that will serve as the lining with the same measurement as the crochet bag.

So, this was how it looks like after I made the bag for about 2 days. And the customer had expressed her approval and likeness of the bag after she received it months ago, which made me glad.

So, after I had been working on the bag for approximately two days, this is how it appeared. And I was happy because the customer had expressed how much she liked the purse when she had received it months earlier.

Hope you find it helpful when you think of making your own crocheted bag. 😘

I made a post last week in which anyone can make a guess of my favorite number that will receive some of my crocheted items to be sent to the winner/s in celebration of my 2 years here in Hive and here are the participants:

There are only two ways to obtain a crocheted bag Witty. It's either you learn to make it for yourself or I can send you one in exchange of a legendary land?😜

haha, di naman. Depende lang yun sa isang tao eh. Iba iba din naman kasi tayu ng mga nakahiligan na nae enhance eh. Kaya ganun. Mahirap lang sya sa umpisa and yung friend mo kung determined talaga syang matuto then matututo sya.

Wow! ang galing mo naman sis @jonalyn2020 at ang ganda ng mga gawa mo. Parang namiss ko din mag crochet pero basic lang ata alm ko. Ballpen holder and cp holder lang nagawa ko before eh, ball thread tawag ko don sa ginagamit ko noon. Di ko na nga maalala ang mga name ng stitches ba tawag dyan hehehe. Natuto lang ako noon kasi need pag high school sa TLE ata yun hehehe.

Anyway! Wow ako pala nanalo? hehehe late na nga ako naka comment and unexpected ako pa nanalo...

I like yung green na terno sis peru di talaga ako mahilig ng mga maiksi at tops lang hehehe. Di rin ako nag e-earings hehehe so siguro yung bucket hat na lang hehehe.. Salamat in advance sis.
