Bobbles for Baubles Bag
2021 seems to be the year for useful crochet around my house. Whether that’s my Llama dusting mitt, the Pan Protectors, or my new Crochet Snood, I’m happy to create something that makes my home more efficient and helpful as well. Not to mention pretty! 😉
When I first played around with this stitch set, I knew it needed to be made into something fun. The Bobbles for Baubles bag pattern is the perfect answer. Airy enough for produce, sturdy enough to carry notebooks, and a great size for either.
For this bag pattern we are using cotton yarn – I am using my favorite, Dishie cotton, in the Creme Brulee colorway.
