The Best Blogger Crafts: Quirky Crochet Handbag

Print This Post Print This Post


This month we’re celebrating our bloggers and their creativity. In January 2014 at CHA, bloggers gathered at our CHA Networking Event to meet companies and to work more with us here FaveCrafts. After getting a bunch of crafty swag from the event, they set out to make projects out of the materials they were given. We’re featuring these projects all month with giveaways so you can make your own versions of their wonderful crafts.

Quirky Crochet Handbag

Quirky Crochet HandbagIn our contest last month, each of these blogger crafts were voted upon by fans for a great prize! This Quirky Crochet Handbag by Jaime Maraia from Crochet Dynamite came in second place!

This Quirky Crochet Handbag is an explosion of color that you can carry with you. This tutorial on how to make a crochet purse involves alternating seven colors of yarn. Instead of looking chaotic, the effect is a cute striped pattern that allows the colors of yarn to blend slightly.
