Crochet Along: Nordstrom Crochet Hobo Bag
I don't crochet much because it makes my hand hurt, but I fell in LOVE with this bag on Ravelry and I GOTTA have it. I've started on it but didn't realize my yarn was actually as thick or thicker than what she used so I doubled up on yarn. Big mistake - I don't know WHAT I was drinking when I did that!!!!!! It was gonna be huuuuuuuge.

So I frogged it last night starting again tonight.

Here's the one I loved on Ravelry: Mason204's version


It's called the Nordstrom's Crochet Hobo Bag and I'm doing it in Dreamy Chenille in a light teal color. I will post a pic once I get into it. Easy project and lovely, don't you think?

Just a tip. When I restarted my bag tonight I did the starting chain 44 with 2 yarns at once, and then cut one to do the rest with just one yarn. That will make the bottom sturdier I think.

That's a good idea!

I love that! I have seen lots of bags I would love to do, but the thing that prevents me, is the dang lining... I can't even sew a button. I guess I could take it to a seamstress?

Sewing is too easy, it's just intimidating at first, like knitting is! Just go for it. As with knitting, if it don't work, rip, rip, rip! ;o) You can PM me if you need sewing tips. I learned to sew around the age of 10 on a 1929 Singer treadle machine (I'm not that old BTW, it was my grandmother's machine)

A Self Contradicting Name
Isn't the phrase "Nordstrom Crochet Hobo Bag" an oxymoron similar to "Jumbo Shrimp" or "Large Diet Soda?"

It is a pretty bag, what size is it? My DW might like a new handbag, though I'd need help picking a suitable color.

P.S. Is there a non-Ravelry pattern? Alas, I never received a response when I asked to join, unless....

Did I forgot to submit the form?

I am embarrassed to admit how long it took me to get your joke... but now that I do -- that was a good one!
