Are you ready for a new easy crochet purse pattern? You’re going to love this one! I designed the Torrey Tote Kit with brand new crocheters in mind. That’s right…this sweet and simple satchel comes together in only TWO HOURS! Crochet the perfect little bag, then add a lovely, removable leather handle, along with a one-of-a-kind antique toggle button closure.
“But I don’t crochet,” you say.
This beginner-friendly project is a perfect way to learn! With easy-to-follow instructions, form the bag from a simple rectangle made of single crochets. It gets its bento bag shape through folding at the final step. Don’t worry… I’ll walk you through every step of making this bag with my detailed pattern and video (included with your kit).
If you’ve never crocheted with twill tape before, let me tell you, you’re in for a treat! Soft and pliable, 100% cotton twill tape gives the most fabulous texture and holds up beautifully over time with regular use. You can knit or crochet with it, weave or sew with it. Flax & Twine Twill Tape comes in 8 gorgeous, earthy colors to make your Torrey Tote sing! Doesn’t the Terra-Cotta (pictured above) look just right for fall?
This bag puts the FUN in function with its unique shape that’s easy to wear everyday. Toss it over your shoulder as you head out the door! The finished bag measures 13" wide x 12" tall, which is perfect for your keys, wallet, and everyday essentials. Did I mention you can pop off the leather handle for easy cleaning? In addition to the removable purse strap, this tote bag features a handy toggle button to keep its contents secure.
The complete kit comes with:
:: 150 yards of Flax & Twine 3/8" Twill Tape
:: US P (11.5 mm) Crochet Hook
:: Toggle Button
:: 16" Removable Tan Leather Handle (from Coco Knits)
