Dye-it-yourself crocheted project kits

Kit10 - Elegant evening bag

This delightful little evening bag would work equally well as a bag for wedding favours, as weddings are occasions when a hand-made gift is truly treasured, and gifts are commonly given to bridesmaids as a reminder of their part in the special event. You could make a set in colours to coordinate with the wedding flowers or the bridesmaids' dresses; or, by making a number of skeins in similar shades you could make a lovely set of gift bags, filling them with sweets, jewellery, or other small keepsakes.

The yarn I have used gives quite a firm-textured fabric but, if you would like the bag to stand on its own without collapsing, you could insert a small tube of cardboard when needed. The drawstring is an easy-to-make closure enabling the bags to be worn on the wrist, if desired.

This kit will make a bag 7.5cm (3ins) across the base, 9cm (3½ ins) tall.

The kit includes:

  • 50g (1 oz) viscose ribbon yarn (4ply)
  • 3 x 5g Procion MX dyes of your choice
  • beads
  • ribbon for the drawstring
  • fixer
  • accessory pack (gloves, apron, measuring spoon)
  • full instructions and crochet pattern

In addition, you will need:
