Are you a "Sex and the City" type of girl who stares in the store window at the beautiful handbags from Louis Vuitton, Prada, Gucci and Michael Kors, but you cry on the inside because you know you can't afford it? Yep, I'm that type of girl, and as the tears stream down my face I realize how silly it is just for a name. It's like a light bulb goes on every time because that's the moment I realize I can make my own DIY bags. When learning how to crochet bags I smile from ear to ear knowing that not only am I saving my money, but I'm also putting in the time and effort to get exactly what I want. There's nothing more satisfying than starting and finishing a project you handmade yourself, which is why we're presenting you with this brand new eBook full of all kinds of DIY bags!

How to Make Crochet Purses
Crochet purses are great everyday bags—they can go from work to play with ease and typically feature a long shoulder strap to keep it close. Sometimes you just really need a purse that you can slip on over your shoulder and go, so don't miss out on these stylish but functional designs!
The Mesmerizing Messenger Bag (p. 16) is truly remarkable! Crochet bag patterns like this are glorified in the crochet colors that you choose, but the pattern itself is just stunning. This handmade bag is stylish and roomy and can hold all your belongings. A nice added touch is the optional strap adjuster, so be sure you check this one out!
How to Make Crochet Clutches
Perfect for going out on the town, crochet clutches are just big enough for the essentials. You won't have to juggle those small, loose items like a cell phone, wallet, or keys, which are important to keep with you but can look clunky or distracting when you carry them around in your hand. This way, clutches can add style to a more formal outfit and help you stay organized at the same time.
The Crochet Clutch (p. 36) is a cute crochet design because you can embellish it with just about anything. This particular DIY clutch bag is embellished with two buttons, but you can also add flowers, sequins, or appliques. This is a simple crochet pattern that can be worked up quickly in single crochet; the pattern consists of only 32 rows.
The Art Deco Clutch (p. 38) is a classic-looking clutch that's the perfect size for errands around town. It's big enough for your daily essentials, and it's easy enough to be an ideal crochet pattern for beginners. Make sure to line the bag to help it keep its shape.
How to Make Crochet Totes
Totes are the heavy duty, utility model of purses and bags. However, just because you plan to put a larger bag to work doesn't mean that you have to sacrifice on looks. These items all have personalities of their own that will keep you looking good while you conquer the world, one bag at a time. These crochet totes are great to use as shopping bags and beach bags.
The Striped Crochet Bag with Button (p. 27) is a simple, sturdy and reliable bag to work up. Plus, it has a button to keep your contents secure. You can work this up in just one color, but add some thin striped sections, as pictured, for a bag as unique as you.
The Trendy Tweed Tote (p. 41) is an easy crocheted bag to work up. Red Heart recommends using two strands of yarn at once for added stability and it'll give it an interesting tweed-like texture. The colors complement each other nicely, but as usual, you can use any colors you wish. You might also consider crocheting this design in solids.
