Product details

Two elegant and practical mesh bags, adapted from a wonderful 1930s pattern.

Not your average bags! They have been carefully designed with a number of important features:

  • The bag folds in on itself and is secured with a drawstring, so you can easily keep it in your handbag, glovebox, etc. without it getting tangled.
  • The handles are broader than usual, to avoid them cutting in to your hands.
  • Finer mesh at the bottom of the bag to support the contents.
  • The mesh in the top part of the bag adjusts to better accommodate the contents.

And it's pretty and elegant! You have the option of adding beads to further embellish your bag. 1930s ladies knew how to look smart!

Unlike most 'string' bags, this one is easily nice enough to give as a gift.

Choose 4ply for the Regular bag or No 5 Crochet Cotton for the Small bag - full details are given in the pattern.

Available in both UK and US crochet terminology.
