This the season for summer accessories, and the summer crochet shoulder bag is a great example of of how great and “designer” your homemade and personalized crochet projects can look. This bag is a stylish accessory to carry those necessities, whether out with your friends or on the beach… it would even be OK at work. If you make it in pastel/pale colors , it will go very well with any lighter-hued outfit. This is an easy project and you can work the whole thing from start to finish over a day or two. The beaded fringes area beautiful crowning touch as well. A link to the free pattern of the shawl is at the end of the post.
I’m an accomplished craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews on the topic of crocheting and other crafts. In my everyday work, I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new.
I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to making our crochet society bigger and more popular.
I’m interested in crafts and interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.
