MARCH on SPRING

Snowdrops, crocus and daffodils are blooming and the sound of birds singing fills the air. Sunny days, longer days and warmer temperatures are on their way. The long, cold winter is over and it's now nature's time for birth and renewal.

After a cold winter of hibernation, and focusing on staying warm and flu-free, I am totally excited and ready to focus my energy on spring crochet projects, getting out and about more and spending some time "spring cleaning". Time to start anew!

SPRING CROCHET DESIGNS 2018


SPRING Round Bag is my first design for Spring 2018. 

SPRING Round Bag has a vintage lace pattern which is reminiscent of the first spring leaves. 

It is a lightweight bucket bag with the added benefit of a lining to keep its shape. 

This bag is not too big and not too small, it is just the right size for holding my bare essentials such as wallet, mobile, sunglasses, lip balm and hairbrush, with room for a 500ml water bottle as well. Simply perfect for when I don't need to carry anything else.

Yarn Used

I have crocheted the round bag with my favourite mercerised cotton Wendy Supreme Luxury Cotton 4ply. The colours I chose first to represent the bright colour of fresh new leaves on willow trees, they are always an amazing yellowy green, and second the amazing clear blue skies and third the pinky sunrises and sunsets.

You can substitute the yarn, just remember to check the Yarnsub website, to get the best match.

Shape of Bag

For this spring bag design, I decided to make it bucket shape, with the intention of adding a cotton lining so it will hold its shape,  show off the vintage lace pattern and be sturdy enough to stand upright.

Even though I am no expert at sewing I managed to sew the bucket shape lining with interfacing without any hiccups, thanks to this tutorial by Filminthefridge.
