Hi everyone!

Gosh, when I looked at the Ravelry group this weekend my jaw literally dropped to my desk in awe of all the amazing bags! You guys really did an amazing job! :)

Here’s a few of my favourites:

I mean… Wow! Seriously awesome bags! :) But there was one that was my favourite. I just love this bag because it’s so creative! I love the coloured stripes that alternate in a playful way, the gorgeous moss stitch handles, and the icord draw string.

It’s this amazing bag by sianie555!

  1. Amazing! I would have chosen the same bag to win. There are so many talented artists out there.
    Congrats to the winner!
    My bag is still in its infancy…I crochet slower than a snail. ;)

  2. How do I get a pattern for this bag. I absurdly need to make one. I made one about 2 years ago and lost my pattern. I like all the ones that were posted.

  3. How did cornishpixie add the handles?

  4. Wow, those are some lovely bags! I can imagine them all being put to good use :)

  5. Congrats to the winner! We all learned from it!

  6. Congratulations sianie555! Wonderful prize to win. :) Thanks for a fun CAL Wink – I love my bag :)

  7. Always amazing to see how the same pattern can look so very different…lucky winner, congratulations!

  8. I finally finished my bag. I uploaded photos just today! It was a fun project. I always love how so many people can use the same pattern but come up with such awesome variations. It was great to do this as part of a group. Sher

  12. Thank you for all your beautiful patterns, pics & amazing help. I’m a newbie and I thought I’d try your stonewashed beach bag.
    I’ve no idea where to ask for help.
    I’m stuck on row 10.
    Do you mean htr (UK) every 3rd stitch – what does every 3rd loop mean?
    Sorry for asking.
    I promise not to be a pest!
    I’ll send you a pic of final result one day but I’m v v slow!
    Tks again, Lynn
