Rag bags have been trendy lately, between the environmental movement, the need for economizing, and the popularity of t-shirt yarn. Rag bags are eco-friendly, and they’re also cheap to make — but that’s only assuming you are able to recycle old textiles such as sheets for that purpose.
You can make this particular rag bag by crocheting strips of fabric to create a giant rectangle. Next, you fold the rectangle in half, join the side seams, and add the finishing touches — zipper and crocheted purse straps. (All of this is spelled out in precise detail in the actual crochet pattern.)
As far as rag bag patterns go, this one is an easy one, because you don’t have to worry about doing any increases or shaping. The stitch pattern is a bit more interesting than just working straight double crochet. This also gives the bag some extra visual appeal.
This bag can be as colorful and creative as you want it to be. You can use solid fabrics, printed fabrics or any combination thereof.
