wip: soft fun denim fat bottom bag

Hi everyone!

Most of you guessed it right from my last blog post: I’m making another bag! :) And not just any bag, no: I’m making another fabulous fat bottom bag, Parisian style!

Remember when I used to make fat bottom bags all the time? Well, my last one (which was made with gorgeous Noro yarn, still one of my favourites!) has been around the block a couple of times, and I though it was time for a new perspective, a new look. When Scheepjes came out with their Soft Fun Denim yarn, I knew I had found *just* the right yarn for my new bag!

This bag is really easy to make, because it’s basically one big granny square!




I’m almost to 30 rounds, which is when I will transform this giant square into a nice fat bottomed bag. Of course I will share the tutorial for making this bag with you all, for free! Which is going to be a real treat this time, because it will include instructions on how to line the bag! Hurray! :)

And I found the PERFECT lining fabric for this bag, too…


Stay tuned for the ‘Tadah’ post for this bag in the next couple of weeks, and of course the FREE pattern and lining instructions! :)

For everyone interested in getting this yarn: you can get it at Deramores.com right here! (For Dutch readers: Scheepjes has an extensive list of shops on their website right here, including online shops!)

  10. How much yarn will we need so I can get ordering! Love the colours x

    • Hi Mo! Good to see you again :) I’m not exactly sure how much yarn you need yet; but I will definitely let you know! Right now I’m about 5 skeins in (of the Scheepjes Soft Fun Denim) and I expect I’ll need 2 more. But that’s an estimate :)

      • Thanks wink, love your designs x

        • I have placed my order, ordered a few more just in case, you can never have too much yarn can you! Deramores had none of the cream colour and wasn’t on back order either so I have gone for a plain cream in the ordinary soft fun x

  11. Oh man this looks like it is going to be a gorgeous bag! can’t wait for the tutorial so I can get started on mine, thanks for your hard work :D jenny xx

  12. Just wanted to say I love the new book ‘Boho Crochet’ which you edited. Great patterns by some of my favourite designers including you of course. I’ve made the beach bag, the cowl and the mandala featured in your blog. Keep up the good work it is inspirational.

  13. Oh and I forgot to say I’ve just started the 2014 cotton 8 CAL!

  14. I am in love with this bag. Since it takes me awhile to receive my orders here in the U.S., can you tell me how many balls of the Soft Fun is needed for the project? I would love to order now, so that it will be here by the time you post the tutorial! Thank

  15. Hi There,
    I am loving your blog. So full of colour and wonderful ideas.
