Bags for LifePrint
There's no excuse for single use shopping bags. With our own pledge to reduce plastic waste by using only eco-friendly, plastic-free and recyclable packaging, we've gathered together some of our favourite re-usable bag patterns to try at home.
Not only do these bags for life make a nice little project, but they are pretty, practical and good for our beautiful planet. What's not to like?!
Who doesn’t love a granny square! They are super easy to crochet, but look so colourful and in this case, can be joined together to make an attractive and handy bag.
Another quick and easy crochet project is this beach bag. Crocheted in Super Chunky yarn, it can be made in a range of colour combinations.
A traditional style crochet bag, this market bag can be handily folded up and kept in your handbag ready at a moments notice.
We love this simple and stylish beach bag by Rico Design. Knitted in a cotton DK it is super durable and practical.
This bright and colourful striped shopper is so pretty! It’s also a great size for a trip into town.
A floral take on the classic string shopping bag, this crocheted style in Stylecraft Batik DK can be worked up in a beautiful selection of subtle shades.
With it’s wide strap and button fastening, this bag is lovely and comfortable for those long shopping days and is easily opened and closed.
For casual on-the-go style, this bag fits the bill! Crocheted in Rico Creative Cotton Aran, there’s a great range of shades to choose from.
