The Savannah Handbag is a gorgeous, textured, crossbody bag! You’ll find the same great texture in the Savannah Handbag as you do in the other Savannah crochet patterns!
Creating this lovely handbag was way out of my comfort zone because I’m usually making garments or blankets. I’ve only created market, slouchy type bags before. But the end result of this bag was just magnificent! I was so proud and excited to have created this handbag!
For the Savannah Handbag I used Hobby Lobby’s Yarn Bee Denim in Color yarn!
This yarn is a worsted weight yarn that is 50% acrylic and 50% denim. It is very sturdy and doesn’t stretch too much, making it great for this sort of project. You could use any worsted weight (#4) cotton or cotton blend yarn for this project!
I really like cotton blends, rather than 100% cotton. They are sturdy but soft at the same time. This blend works really well for bags and other things like washcloths too!
This pattern is rated Easy on the pattern difficulty scale. If you know the basic crochet stitches as well as how to do a front post double crochet stitch, you will be able to create this handbag.
This project does require a bit of sewing, but only to sew the handles on to the bag.
You will work the bag from the bottom up and then create and add the handles.
