Saddle Bag

I have loved making these hand bags, yet again it is making it up as I go along. Which I love to do.

I saw a girl shopping one weekend with this amazing handbag and I was taking as many mental picture as I could so I could give it a try. This is what I ended up with, not quite the same but I’m really happy with my version.

Getting started on my first bag was the fun of making the front crochet panel to fit the piece of leather that I had. The crochet circle is a tad bit smaller but once your purse, phone and keys go in it stretches to sit really well.

After crocheting the circle to the leather and trimming the edge I added the strap which once your items are in it stretches to sit nicely on the hip.

This is bag Two (with the flower), Three (modelled by me) and four.

I loved bag One so much I couldn’t part with it and has now become a favourite in my bag collection.
