Made a bag the other day, that I’m planning to use as a beach bag. It took A LOT longer then I expected, hehe. But was a fun and harmonizing project so I didn’t mind 🙂 I wanted to have a BIG beach bag, since I tend to pack my whole life when going to the beach. Well, not really but towels, one or two books, Yatzy, different sunscreens, bikinis and so on. The best part of DIY:ing, is that you can choose exactly how you want it, and this time, I wanted a BIG bag!
How to crochet a beach bag
Is was pretty easy making this one. I just crocheted (you can find here how to crochet) as big I wanted the bag to be, and then crocheted the corners together. Then I turned the bag inside out, and TADA! After that I crocheted the handles as well, and to get them stucked, I crocheted them together with the bag.
BUT NOW TO THE PROBLEM… It smells so bad! It’s made out of hemp and apparently Its smells a lot… Yesterday I tried to wash it, but it didn’t help, it actually smells even MORE now. And I’ve tried to air it outside for while, but it doesn’t seem to help.. If you have any ideas how to get rid of the smell, please help a sister out!0
