Crochet Fusion Tote Bag

Well, happy Friday to you!  I hope things in your crafty world are going well. Things are well in my little world, but it seems like I haven’t had hardly any time to pick up a needle or hook really. I can already feel the sniffles and itchy eyes coming on to kick off allergy season. (It’s not even MAY yet… Oye.) But ANYway…. onto my main wip.. this crochet & fabric fusion tote bag! I did want to share a few photos (some of them you’ll notice from my Instagram page) of my progress so far on this fun project! Let’s rewind and start from the beginning!

Doing box corners was a good decision! (I’ll show you why later! 😉)

I did have to end up running to my fabric stash for a bit of white fabric because I just couldn’t live without a bag liner since the whole inside wasn’t going to be crocheted. I also used some crochet thread to blanket stitch around after I was done with the lining so I would have something nice and sturdy to attach the yarn to. You can check out a little video of that process from my Facebook page.

This is a fun project because you get to start off with some sewing, then switch to a little hand embroidery, then whip out your crochet hook & do that! Perfect really, for the crafty person who doesn’t like to do one thing for very long. 😀 (That’s totes me!) Haha, Totes.. get it? Because we’re talking about tote bags?.. ((okay sorry)) 😂

Fun that it is functional as a bag from the start!

I now have crocheted a bit more, and it’s more of a half fabric half crochet bag. So I need to snap another pic and post that…but this has been a fun project so far.. and I can’t wait to share more of the details of creating this with you in some upcoming You Tube videos! For now I’m thinking of different ideas for the handles!

Oh! And the boxed corners were not only a great idea because I wanted the bag to be wider, but because out of the little squares you get left with…you can make some buttons! I don’t yet know how these will be incorporated into the project, but I suppose that’s half the fun!
