Perfect for holding small gifts, crochet hooks, and coffee beans.
This pattern has been requested from me since Hexmas season last year. Tons of you Ghouls shouted, demanded and sent many DMs my way. Well, all of the intensity has paid off because I FINALLY give you the Tunisian Crochet Bloody Gift Bag Pattern!
This is a beginner pattern that won't bore you to tears but will leave you with a KILLER finished object in a very short amount of time.
The hook I'm using is a 5.5mm Furls Tunisian Crochet Hook in Kingsnake. Since this is a small, bite sized project, I was able to comfortably fit it on the hook with no issues. Not to mention these are hands down my FAVORITE Tunisian Crochet Hooks to date and I bust them out as often as I can!
This is also a collaboration with the incredible Macy of Mace of Skeins! I was lucky enough to snag some of her stunning hand dyed yarn to create this bag. One of the many things I love about the yarn is that the colors are so intensely rich and vibrant. When you close your eyes and think Bloody Valentine, THIS is the exact color combo that comes to mind.
We also have our very own collab logo!
What do you think? I fell in lust with it instantly! Soooooo we had to make a few tees and some coffee mugs.
Check out the whole line HERE! It's extremely limited edition and will only be available for our collab so if you love something, snag it sooner than later.
You can (and totally should if you haven't) stalk all things Mace of Skeins here:
She even popped into the Yarn Dungeon for a LIVE meet up to chat all about her yarn and just life in general. Honestly, when we get together just try to stop us from talking or put a time limit on our LIVE. Spoiler alert, never gonna happen:) You can catch the replay of our hang out here!
