Another Bag

Like this one because I used a nice cushy worsted weight yarn for the bottom and the handles.

You can see the pictures above (with the bag empty, full of heavy stuff, and flat).

Giganto-Bag

 

This is another market bag, of large size and with an improvement.

I’ve used thin rayon crochet yarn to give it thin, stretchy walls.

The improvement is that I doubled the yarn so that the bottom, top, and loops are made with a thicker, plusher fabric. This worked out well.

Finished Another One

This time I left off the zipper, which seemed silly, and did it all in Tunisian crochet.

It does not stretch as long, without the knit part. On the other hand, I need to find a better-looking Tunisian lacy stitch.

I really like the mercerized cotton crochet yarn for this type of bag. The bright lime green yarn is something else and perhaps not as successful.

Finished Zipper Bag

And I’m not thrilled with it. I think maybe zippers are silly.

Pictures…

I’ve started on a new and better one, that won’t have a zipper.🙂

A better zipper bag

I hope…

After perusing the choices at the Walmart and the Hobby Lobby, I decided on mercerized cotton (size 3) crochet yarn this time. So far I’m using it with an H/8 hook and the bottom is working out well.

Prototype Zipper Bag

It’s not perfect, but at least it’s finally done.

I added a zipper to keep stuff in
and a twill strap to keep it off the ground…

And filled with heavy stuff…

I made it with baby yarn (acrylic/nylon), which was a pain and may have been a mistake.
I’m mulling over improvements before I start the next one.
