Bag love

As is well known, handicrafts always go. Sometimes you just have to adjust the projects a bit to suit the current weather. Perfect for the summer are bags, for example. They are knitted quickly, are super suitable as a vacation project and are often knitted with natural fibers such as linen or cotton, which glide quickly over needles and hands in hot temperatures.

Learn crochet on the fly

If you are looking for beautiful bags, you will quickly realize: Oops! There is only one needle used. That's right - a crochet hook. At the same time, however, these projects are ideal for practicing the crocheting of chain stitches, solid stitches or chop stitches.

If you want to take a trip into the realm of crochet, you should follow the pattern of Susanne Müller aka Paula_m. She crochets just as great as she knits and has created several tutorials. Among them is for example the Siena Bagwhich you can get in the store as a kit with the paper yarn Papyrus from Kremke Soul Wool. Susaninstructionsttern are suitable for beginners, because they are very detailed and often illustrated.

Also crocheted, but completely different is the circular Sun City Bag. Just like the Siena Bag it makes us dream of a summer vacation on the beach. The bag also offers a good opportunity to spice it up according to your own wishes and ideas. For example, if you like, you can embroider it with cotton thread or decorate it with tassels. The possibilities are (almost) no limits.

Practical and spacious

Who doesn't know that: When you are on vacation, one or the other souvenir wanders along. Or the local market would like to be visited to be inspired for the dinner in the vacation cottage or best directly stock up.

Spacious bags or backpacks are recommended so that everything is safely stowed away.

Minimalist cut and classic design

If you prefer something more timeless, you will of course also find what you are looking for at Maschenfein. For example you can crochet the bag model Yksel by the Japanese designer michiyo. Also the Edda Bag by Paula_m or the Make Me Take Me shopping nets by Initiative Handarbeit are classic companions that work well all year round.

But rather knitting?

You prefer knitting to crocheting? Then PetiteKnit can help you. The Dane has designed the Honey Clutch a small bag that you can use for going out as well as for storing small things.

The model is also good for practicing double knitting and net brioche.

The right accessories

At Maschenfein you can get inspiration, wool packages and of course the right accessories. For the beginning, it is recommended to buy a single needle to check whether the shape and material suit you. Advanced crocheters and knitters can invest well in sets, which can of course be constantly expanded.

And if it should be something ready-made ...

Accessory and project bags not only look pretty, but are also practical.
