This bag is inspired by a bag I saw at my local craft story. When I got home I immediately searched my big crocheting hook and my t-shirt yarn and started crocheting!

This project is really easy, if you have never crochet before this may just be that first time!

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
To make one bag you will need the following:

Start by making a slip stitch. How to make this is shown in the first five pictures. After that, we will start with the first row: 30 chains (If you want to make a bigger bag, make more chains, if you want a smaller bag make less chains)

Wrap your crochet hook around the yarn as shown and pull it through the loop.

Step 3: Make it round

Since we'll be working in circles for this project, you need to join the end and the beginning of your chain to make a circle. Put your crochet hook through the first loop and wrap the yarn around the crochet hook. Then, pull your crochet hook through the first and the last loop to join them.

Step 4: Let the crocheting begin

So, now you have your first round, your base. To make the rest of the bag you'll need to make single crochets (American) or double crochets (English). Put your crochet hook through the next loop, wrap the yarn around it, pull it back, wrap the yarn around it again and pull it through both loops. Once you've got this, just keep crocheting!

Just notice that when you have finished the first row of single/double crochets, from there on there are two loops the crochet hook should go through, the complete 'V'.

Thank you so much! Yes, crocheting is so much fun, but beware, it could be addicting :)

So nice! I have a passion for crocheting using thick yarn right now and this makes me want to try it even more! I wish I had a big crochet hook...
