Beach Bag Season

I know I am a little late on this post, it’s been awhile since I released these bag patterns, but these bags are fun enough to revisit. Plus, I have the Beach on my mind and these patterns are perfect for a sandy day at the beach or even a sunny day at the pool!

I fell in love with the new Bernat Maker Home Dec Yarn and had to make a bag or 2, or maybe 3 with it. They work up fast and the yarn is so nice and thick that you don’t have a ton of holes so you can skip the entire process of lining them if you want.

How fun is the Octopus Tote? I started out with a Cthulhu type design (because I am a nerd) and when I started working it up he took on his own life and I have to say that I think he is just adorable.  You can grab the pattern in my Ravelry shop.

The 2nd design in my Beach Bag series is the Waves Tote! This fun bag is perfect for your book, some snacks and some sunscreen. Throw them all in and spend a day in the sun! My Waves Tote Pattern is also available on Ravelry.

I couldn’t forget about the little ones. Grab my Seahorse Backpack pattern and hook up this fun backpack for a little one in your life. Perfect for the beach, pool or just for play! Pattern available on Ravelry!

All of my new Beach Bags are done in a modified Split Single Crochet. This means that I made a small change from how most people do it so that the image stays all lined up and the eyelet holes are in the perfect place.  Check out this quick video that shows you how I do my Split Single Crochet.

I also used some eyelets to the bags for a nice finish. They also help the handles stay where they need to be. Have you ever added eyelets to your crochet? If not here is a quick link to a tutorial on how I add eyelets to my work.

I hope you have enjoyed my patterns and video tutorials. Come over to Facebook and share your work and don’t forget to add those projects in Ravelry! I love to see what everyone makes.
