Crochet a Free People-like Bag

 This gurl loves bags and crochet.  

I recently spied a Free People bag but the price tag was a bit rich so I decided to make my own.  The only thing lacking is the sequin interior lining which I'm currently shopping for.

I used the crochet grocery bag pattern found here and added a few more rows to the body and strap.  I'm loving the ombre' dying technique lately and decided to use it on the bag.  [Look below for a link to purchase a pre-made bag if you can't crochet.]

I dug around my stash for some bits of lace, studs, bling and added them to the strap along with a hot pink pom pom.

I'm lovin' it and can't wait to add the sequin interior lining!


Added the sequin lining!!!

ps.  If you don't know how to crochet, you can purchase a pre-made bag, ombre' dye it and add the bling and lining.
