As promised here are the rest of the bags I crocheted to go with the handles I had purchased.
|Large flower crochet bag|
|Colourful stripes crochet bag|
I used this pattern: crochet bag pattern
I made my stripes a little different from the pattern. It really doesn't matter what colors you use or how many rows you make of one color so it would be a good project for using up wool scraps.
For both of these bags I used patons classic wool and felted it as in the" intarsia" crochet bag on another post. I also did not leave it flat but brought in the sides and tacked them . The bags still fully open and hold a lot.
The flowers are made without a real pattern but there are many good links to patterns here.
The final bag was completely different as the handles I found were more unique:
|Black and white crochet bag|
The pattern for this bag is found here
This bag was crocheted out of nylon so has a completely different feel.
All the bags are fully lined and a piece of plastic was inserted in the bottom between the lining and the outside in the black and white one so that it would stand up straight.
I am sorry I didn't take a picture of the inside of the bags. The black and white one has a black and white striped ticking as lining.
All of these are fun to make. Happy Crocheting!
