This adorable crocheted boho purse is my new favorite thing that I’ve made. It’s the perfect size to carry around the next crochet project that I’m working on. (I often times will take my projects with me to work so that I can work on them during my lunch break). It easily fits a couple of skeins of yarn and my hook pouch.
Normally, I’m more of a neutral color person, but in this bag, I’m really liking the pop of color it ads to my outfit. It certainly helps that all my outfits are grey or black :P.
I used Make & Do Crew’s Bohemian Fringed Crochet Bag (pattern link at bottom of the post). I love that a lot of her patterns are a modern twist to the bohemian style.
The pattern is straight forward and easy to follow. It’s a great pattern for those beginners looking to move to the next level and try a few new stitches as well as double crochet stitch decreasing (used in the flap).
- Loops & Threads® Impeccable™ Yarn, Solid , Medium (4), 2.5 skeins (I would have used three skeins if I did the fringe.
- 5mm Crochet Hook
- Tapestry Needle
- Stitch Marker (optional – held the two sides together at the end)
One of my favorite things about crochet is that you can take any pattern or idea and customize it to yourself. There’s been very few times where I’ve followed a pattern to the T. I always see something and think ‘hmm… I think this way will be better…‘ certainly has led to many failed attempts, however, It’s been a great learning curve!
I did make a couple of changes to her pattern. I opted out of the fringe, and I also skipped the flap from the pattern. I had made it, but couldn’t get myself to cover the beautiful design below. I love the flap and fringe for a white bag, but since mine is a brighter purple, I opted for a more simple design.
