How to DIY a crochet bag without crocheting

A crochet bag can be a playful accessory for summer and it's a perfect DIY project. The one above, in the shape of a pineapple is from  H&M and you can buy it or use it as an inspiration to create your very own crochet bag.   I've made several drawstring crochet bags during the years, in any color. You can use cotton, wool or rafia. You can use a thread with some gold lamè and make a evening bag or choose a shaded cotton thread and make a ombre bag. Don't worry basic crochet is easier than you might think! You can learn how to crochet on you tube or use this time saver instructions to make a crochet clutch in a matter of minutes (without crocheting) similar to the one below:
  • buy two doilies (or steal them from your aunt living room)
  • put them one onto another
  • sew them together around the edges
  • leave one side open or insert a zipper or sew a button
  • and you've done!

Una borsetta di pizzo all'uncinetto è un accessorio divertente da indossare in estate ed è un perfetto progetto fai da te da ultimare rapidamente. La borsetta qui in alto a forma di ananas è prodotta da H&M. Potete comprarla o ispirarvi ad essa per creare la vostra borsetta all'uncinetto. Cosa rende speciale una borsetta fatta con le vostre mani? E' un pezzo unico. Otterrete risultati diversi ultizzando lana, cotone o rafia. Potete sceglierne il colore. Sceglierete un filato con del lamè dorato per realizzare una borsetta da sera oppure un filato melange per realizzare una borsetta sfumata. Se non siete già appassionate di uncinetto non temete, imparare è più facile di quello che sembra. Per cominciare imparate i punti base su you tube oppure se proprio non avete tempo potrete comunque realizzare una pochette all'uncinetto in pochi minuti seguendo le mie istruzioni

  • acquistate due centrini (o sfilateli da sotto i soprammobili della zia)
  • metteteli uno sull'altro
  • cuciteli insieme lungo i bordi
  • lasciate un lato aperto o cuciteci una zip o un bottone
  • voilà! la pochette è pronta

Super easy and cute, what a nice idea. It would also look so nice if you dyed it in a bright color. How's everything going??? I've been super easy lately and didn't have a minute to stop by my favorite blogs...

Kisses!!

Just wanted to stop by and say Hello. I may not comment on each post, but I am reading them. Stay cool! I love the idea but hate to destroy my doilies!

Hi! Thanks for taking the time to comment! I really appreciate that and thanks for reading! :D

I think it's a nice idea to make them wearable but I understand that it takes time to make doilies. If you don't want to use the ones you made but still want to try this project try look in local markets you should be able to find some doilies at inexpensive prices.
