Fun, Crochet Summer Handbag

Summer is a great time to crochet and this fun, crochet summer handbag is the perfect project.  I made this crochet summer handbag using t-shirt yarn.    I used a product from  Hoooked Zpagetti.  I was given this product when I attended the Association for Creative Industries (Formerly CHA – Crafts and Hobby Association).    Learning of new products if always a highlight of the event.

There are many video tutorials for making your own t-shirt yarn.  You can find tarn (t-shirt yarn) at many stores.  I’m not beginning to see this material used in many different projects including handbags, rugs and even some stuffed animals.  I hope you enjoy this project.   I have also included a link to the video tutorial for visual learners.

Easy Crochet Plus Size top for Women

This Easy crochet plus size top is a result of many requests.  So many of you have requested patterns that are plus sizes for women.  I designed this easy crochet plus size top to be both comfortable and pretty.  This easy crochet plus size top uses rectangular shapes and some easy shaping.  There are only 3 pieces to this top.  I think you will enjoy making and wearing it.  The top should fit most 2XL – 3XL (although everyone is different).  I measured a friend who wears between a 2XL and 3Xl for the sizes.  I understand that not everyone is shaped the same but I designed the top to be pretty forgiving.   I have also included instructions for a medium size, approximately 38″ bust.   Plus, I have also included a link for a YouTUbe video tutorial.
