Description

This is a Zpaghetti crocheted handbag which I crocheted in about one hour.

It features wood effect hands and a vintage brooch.

I have a feeling that this could be the beginning of a Zpaghettimania. So simple.

note: The bag feels really heavy, it probably weighs 1 kg empty. Zpaghetti is a trademark knitting/crocheting yarn made from t-shirt like fabric, very strong and heavy, however easy to work with. A success!

Material Notes

Zpaghetti, size 10 or 11 crochet hook

    Very nice! The wood handles are just perfect for this bag. I love zpaghetti yarn, but like you say, it is heavy and the finished project does weigh pretty much. But isn’t it fun to be able to knit or crochet something in so fast! Oh the joys of zpaghetti ;)

      Thank you! I bought a box of brooches from the local antique market. They always come in handy!
