Crochet Bucket Bag - $30

Wednesdays, September 28th & October 12th, 6p-8p

You can never have too many project bags!  In this class, students will learn how to crochet their own drawstring bucket bags.  Starting with an oval base, we'll cover how to do simple crochet increases and give you some tips on how to keep track of your stitches and rows.  From there you'll be ready to go home and work the body of the bag.  During the second class you'll be learning how to work the eyelet border and drawstring straps to complete your pouch.  This pattern offers several sizing options that all use the same construction, so you'll be able to make a whole set!
