Hoooked Zpagetti Rimini Handbag

Shell Stitch Crochet Bag

I finally finished the crochet bag for my sister the other week! This bag was so simple to make and I’m really pleased I chose Smoothie DK as the substituted yarn as it looks fabulous with a slight sheen.

The pattern is DROPS 120-9 Paris Bag and is free to download from Garn Studio here. I left out the ribbon trim and added a removable lace & chiffon brooch that I made from a headband I picked up in Primark for 50p! I also added a few more rows onto the trim at the top.
