Handbags are an integral part of many a woman’s wardrobe.
From classic shapes like the Chameleon, to cute accessories like the Mambo, to classic patterns like the Cinque Ports, handbags have long been a staple of our lives.
But the number of handbags we can crochet has dramatically increased in the last two decades.
A new category called crochet handbag is emerging as an alternative to the traditional pattern of embroidery, which has long been the go-to way of fashion designers to sell their designs.
Handbags in crochet handbags have a different feel to traditional embroideries, and can be tailored for any occasion.
Here’s a step-by-step guide to crochet crochet hand bags.
What are crochet hand bag patterns?
Crochet handbag patterns have their origins in the UK in the 1980s and are a type of handbag pattern that has since been adopted by many other countries.
They’re based on the same basic construction principles that are used in traditional handbags – the same fabric that goes under the cuffs and the top of the bag.
The basic structure of a crochet handbarrel is as follows:1.
First, you need a hook (or stitch) that will be attached to the fabric you’ll be stitching into the crochet pattern.
This hook is the crochet hook.2.
Next, you stitch in the crochet stitches to the hook, starting from the top.
Repeat the process on the other side of the stitch.
This is called “stitching in the wrong direction”.3.
Finally, you complete the final round of stitches, starting on the right.
A good way to learn how to crochet is to watch a video tutorial.4.
Now that you’ve made your crochet hook and stitch, you’ll need to thread it through the fabric of the crochet handband.
Simply put, you sew a thread through the crochet stitch that will go into the crocheted handbag, then sew it through a loop on the crochet side of your hook.5.
Then, you attach the crochet thread to the crochet loop by tying it into a knot with a small knot.
This will make the crochet threads attach to the stitches of the handbag in crochet hooks, and not to the embroideried fabric.6.
When you’ve completed the stitch that you just finished on your hook, you close the loop and pull the crochet back out, creating a new crochet hook out of the thread.
Repeat this process on both the crochet and embroiderised side of both the hook and the crochet loops.7.
You then stitch the crochet hooks back into place and close the crochet on both sides of your crochet hand band.8.
When all your crochet hooks are finished, you have your crochet crochet bag, and you can crochet it all the way through the handband, making sure to attach your crochet stitches on both ends.
This process is called attaching your crochet threads.
You can also crochet your crochet bags in any other way you’d like, such as by hand, with a machine, or even by sewing it together on the back of a sewing machine.
This technique is called sewing.9.
Finally – and this is the fun part – you crochet the crochet bag back into its original shape.
A crochet bag can be folded in half to make a smaller bag.
This makes it easier to sew the two sides together.10.
How to make crochet handpieces?
Crocheting handbags is an easy way to give your own unique style a hand.
You don’t have to be a professional crocheter to do this, and it’s a great way to add style to your collection.
Here are some basic steps to crochet a crochet bag:1) Start with a crochet hook (a crochet hook is a hook that will stay attached to your crochet pattern).2) Start stitching in the stitch you just made on your crochet thread.
This stitch is called the crochet seam.
(If you are not a crocheting enthusiast, here’s a video to help you get started.)3) Repeat on both crochet and crochet loops of your crochety bag.
4) Then attach the hook to the stitch in between the stitches on your crochet thread.5) Then sew your crochet stitch into the stitch on your back of the hook.
(You can use a machine or a machine-like sewing machine, but we prefer to use our hand-sewn crochet bag.)6) Finish the crochet stitching on both stitches on the crochet back of your hand bag, closing the crochet at the top, then attaching the crochet ends to the back loops of the hooks you just sewed.
(This is called seaming.)7) Finally, attach your stitches to both crochet hooks.8) You can crochet your handbags using your hand as a sewing needle.
If you don’t want to use a sewing tool, there are plenty of crochet hand items available for crochet knitting.
