About the pattern:
The pattern for the Macie bag is available in TheEasyDesign store on Etsy.
The pattern is well written, the instructions are very clear and there are plenty of helpful pictures. The stitches are very easy and the bag worked up fast!
The yarn I used:
Some time ago I purchased Lion Brand 24/7 cotton which is perfect for such project as a bag. I crocheted my bag with 2 strands of yarn and used hook 6.5 mm. I used 6 skeins, color – Ecru.
While I enjoy crocheting, I especially love to design appliques, which are perfect for embellishment. My applique patterns can be found in my Etsy store and in my Ravelry store. All my FREE applique patterns are available on this website in the Appliques section.
To embellish my bag, I crocheted seashell and starfish appliques. I made them with one strand of yarn and I used crochet hook 4 mm. I decided to make them using the same color of yarn that I used for the bag. This makes the embellishments enhance the beauty of the bag but without standing out too much by themselves. I think they make a great combination!
