Hi there, I am back with more raffia yarn crochet pattern. Hope you like this small Raffia Bucket Bag I designed and make as a small bag to bring out for tea and coffee with friends and family. It is light weight and handy when you don’t feel like bringing a big purse out. The leather drawstring and straps just perfected the raffia bucket bag by adding bits of luxury touch, making it looks like those just came out from the branded luxury designer shops. The best part is that you can make this raffia bucket bag with my free pattern that won’t burn a hole in your pocket.
This raffia bucket bag is about 6″ in diameter and 7″ in height. Crochet by raffia yarn (available soon at Craft Passion Shop) with a 3.5mm hook. The free crochet pattern come a written pattern, instruction and step photos, including 2 tapestry designs: Checkerboard (LV Damier inspired) and Chevron. The holes for the drawstring is covered by eyelets so it is easy for the drawstring to glide through.
Besides crochet pattern, there is also an instruction on how to add lining to the bag. Not all bag will come out exactly the same dimension as I did for this raffia bucket bag, hence, the lining instruction will include the direction on how to size your own lining according to your bucket bag.
It was a hot sun shiny afternoon when my daughter and I brought along these 2 raffia bucket bags while having our family lunch and tea at the heritage site of Penang island. The bucket bag is able carry my small purse, keys, mobile phone, a pack of tissue paper, lipsticks and a pocket mirror perfectly. We had a wonderful time together strolling along the beautiful heritage landmark, admiring the wall murals, cherish the conservation done on the historical building and construction, of course we took lots of photos with my new gear Canon EOS 6D Mark II.
Hope you enjoy crochet with raffia as much as I do. Though the yarn is not as flexible as wool or cotton yarn, some may find it is hurting their fingers, but the result of making bags, purse and hat with raffia is stunning. Just love that raffia yarn is absolutely non-pilling and will not have little balls, of pills, of thread on the surface of the bag after using it after an extent of time. Raffia is lightweight, so much lighter than canvas and leather, and yet hold it’s shape perfectly.
