Do you remember my boho-chic bags? I really love that pattern, and decided to make one for myself. Although I love the colors from the pattern, I must admit that when it comes to my dressing style I’m not a very adventurous person. I prefer neutral colors and maybe some shades of pink in the summer. That’s all! So, I decided to make a boho-chic bag in a neutral color, and found the perfect yarn for that project. It is Eco-cotton by Yarn Art, color 768, 220m/100g, 85% cotton, 15% polyester. Made in Turkey. I really like that shade of dark beige. It looks like nature! if you know what I mean… I spent 2 skeins of 100g.
The great thing about making a bag, is that you need to make only 8 granny squares (at least in this case), which is quite easy and fast to do. So it might be an ideal project for a crafty weekend. I finished all crocheted parts very quickly, but I procrastinated with lining the bag, because sewing isn’t something I’m eager to do. But, after some time, maybe a week, I really wanted my bag finished and ready to wear, so I sat down and did quite a simple job of lining the bag. It took me maybe an hour. Actually, it took me one week and an hour. The lesson – learned! Procrastination does not pay off! “Life is short, don’t be lazy” to quote Sophia Amoruso from #girlboss. (by the way, the book is great!)
The bag is a bit larger than my previous bags, it’s 30 cm (11,8″) x 32 cm (12,6″), and the strap is 112 cm (44″) long.
I used a plain cotton fabric for the lining, and that’s all!
Have a nice week!
