21 Aug Jane Mini Bag
Jane Birkin was an iconic British actress, singer, and model with a distinctive style and a significant impact on pop culture. A versatile artist of great elegance, her bohemian image and unique voice turned her into a timeless icon. Her career was filled with achievements and contributions to the arts and culture that left an unforgettable legacy.
A seamless mini bag made in a single piece. Its construction is incredibly simple as the base, body, and handles of the bag are all crocheted at once in a spiral form.
The first step involves creating the oval base of the bag using basic crochet stitches. Following that, the body of the bag is crocheted using a variation of the half double crochet slip stitch, which adds a unique and voluminous effect.
As you progress through the pattern, the mini bag starts to take shape and wide. Its size and design are perfect for carrying headphones or other small items you need to have at hand.
