Crochet bags does not have to be expensive! You can easily make one yourself if you are familiar with basic crochet stitches. Yes, it’s true!

The satisfaction of having made your own bag will only add to the overall excitement. Summer bags need to be capacious and easy to wear on the shoulder. You should be able to keep all the necessary things inside, and they can take a lot of space, especially if you are going to the beach! Grab your crochet hook, try making a bag for yourself and prepare for a lot of orders – others will love to have one, too, I am sure 😉 Take a look at examples below and search for links to free patterns under the pictures.
