Mary Poppins Inspired Magic Crochet Bag
If you're wondering where Mary Poppins got her magic bag, this free purse pattern is the answer. The Mary Poppins Inspired Magic Crochet Bag harnesses the magic of T-shirt yarn combined with mesh styling to allow the bag to stretch out to accommodate a smorgasbord of items for those days when you can't get to the car without packing half your house with you.
When you only have a few essentials, though, it still stays cute and perky. The single flower at the bottom gives the whole piece a fresh, vibrant pop, and the color combinations are limitless. This is also one of the best beginner crochet patterns because it only uses two stitches: chain and single.
NotesBecause of the nature of t-shirt yarn, it is impossible to tell you how many t-shirts you would need to cut up with any degree of accuracy. Not only are t shirts all different sizes, but they don’t all stretch equally! Helpful hint: Use t-shirts made from the same thickness and type of fabric. You can also buy T-shirt yarn if you don't want to make it.
