is how the French say “what to wear”.
Here’s my selection for different occasions.
Of course these handbags had to be either crocheted or knitted, with no compromise on style and ‘looks’.
If you love texture, neutrals, wanted to “blend in” or just go anywhere, any one of these 3 bags are great!
Whether you’re on holiday in the Alps or at the seaside, these handbags are detailed, yet simple, with just enough texture to be interesting.
For shopping on the high street you need something special. Nothing that a little brass plate with the initials “D&G” can’t fix. Combine that with very simple flower motifs in raffia or DK cotton and you have a winner.
Just the right size for the essentials. Who needs a lot of stuff if you’re in good company anyway?
These three bags are FUN and easy enough to crochet over a weekend and so delisciously colourful. I’m even thinking left-over squares …
I hope that my selection inspires you to start making (or shopping…)
Let me know which bag you love most and share a handbag that you’ve crocheted or knitted with us on Facebook.
Have a good weekend!
(or as the French say “Bon weekend”!)
PS Please note that this post is just about inspiration. Some items are sold out, but I found a very interesting blogpost HERE with loads of crocheted handbags and diagrams (if you’re able to read them I believe this is the jackpot).
