Rustic Crochet Jute Bag How To Crochet With Jute Twine Cord
"One of the greatest things about crochet bags is that they are extremely versatile. They can be used for any occasion. You can make them in any size or shape as you desire.... right from a small crochet gift bag to a large Crochet Tote Bag, Purse , Market Bag, Beach Bag or an elegant evening bag. Crochet Bags are not only pretty but also very functional and practical. Today am sharing the pattern for this quick and easy Rustic Crochet Jute Bag. I love the rustic feel of jute twine. Crochet Patterns made with Jute twine are beautiful to look at and they are extremely strong , durable and sturdy. They are just perfect for crocheting Bags and Large Laundry Baskets. They are also great for many more DIY crafts for your home. The Jute Twine being quite sturdy gives the finished bag a sturdy shape and prevents it from stretching. The crochet stitches used are basic making it beginner friendly. In this crochet pattern, the handles are crochet from jute twine too. If you wish, you can try replacing it with ready made handles. These ready made handles will definitely give a different look to this bag. You might find the Jute twine a bit rough and hard to work with. If you find it hard to pull out the stitches, try changing your hook size or try holding the twine in a different way for more comfort and keep the stitches loose. Working with Jute can be messy too 'coz they leave back little particles of the fibers, but its fun and worth making Crochet Projects with them.
