Vintage Up cycled Beach Bag Free Pattern
By AnnooCrochet Designs
This is a new version of My up cycled Beach Bag.
I am such a poor sewer, and I had to find a way to create a beach Bag with lining, and no need for sewing !!! Mission Completed!
This adorable Bag only takes a simple Canvas Tote and simple crochet technique to achieve.
I will use different color Yarn for this Tutorial, but in fact I am sticking to one color per bag.
You will Need
A Canvas Tote 15 by 15 inches
A Sharp Crochet or a whole puncher
Crochet hook 3.25mm
Cotton Yarn of your choice I used Martha Stewart Hemp in Red, white or Blue
sc: single crochet
dc: double crochet
at the top of your tote measure a cm all along and mark with a pen
begin by sl st with your sharp crochet in the first dot on your right side,
sc all along trying not to crochet too tightly, or it will create an uneven border, sc all along both sides of your tote.
You will have 78 stitches.
Round 1: [sc, sk 3 st, ch4,] repeat all around
Round 2: ch4, [sc in round 1 ch4, ch4, ] repeat all around
it will look like so as you crochet
Eventually you will fold it down this way
continue working in the round until you have about 28 rounds, enough to reach the bottom of your Tote.
For the last Round, ch5 and sc in both sides loops together
Finish by ch3 and sc at the edge of your work
Sew in all lose tails
You could leave, your handles as it is, but I like to crochet around it, to make it a little more durable, and to give your Beach bag a more finished look
sl st through the front right vase of your handle, sc in same space and in next space
You will sc Crochet around the Handle,
Voila, repeat for the other handle, and you are done!!!
Time for a Beach Day!!!
