We have been looking forward to launching this bubble bag design for what feels like ages and finally it’s here! This fabulous kit comes in two sizes and has an embroidery add on kit too. The bags are truly beautiful and can be used as project bags, toy bags, laundry bags or even a summer picnic in the park bag, you may actually need to make more than one. They are slightly addictive as I ended up making 4 (make that 5) as one was just not enough.
The bubble bag has a unique double top that acts to reinforce the handle and provide a neat finish to the fabric lining. The standard kit needs a 4.5mm hook and the larger size was made using a 6mm hook, obviously you can vary this to suit your preference of hook size and finished bag stiffness. You will also need a knitters needle to sew your ends and lining in.
Finished sizes will vary depending on your tension and yarn used, below is a guide to how big your bag will be.
Standard bubble bag will be approx 28cm high, around 35cm diameter at its widest point and the opening is about 26cm diameter.
Double bubble bag will be approx 39cm high, around 50cm diameter at its widest point and the opening is about 38cm diameter.
The pattern involves a magic ring and then just double crochet stitches, slip stitches and chains so it great for beginners with some experience or more advanced crocheters who just need another bag! The pattern doesn’t just include the crochet element to this bag it also provided instructions on how to cut your own pattern for the fabric lining allowing it to perfectly fit your bag whether you are a loose or a tight hooker (crochet tension of course).
