Crochet Round Hemp Bag

Hi guys! Happy Friday! We are still on holiday. Week two rolling in so the days blend into each other. I’ve been working on several projects at a time and I recently finished this bag.
This is a sample bag I made using hemp. Working on it was challenging. When I first started it I thought and felt I was going to bring my fingers to blood. Never before have I used hemp to crochet with, so it was difficult at first but after the first round side was made I got used to it and everything went smooth afterwards.
I wanted to add wooden handles but I didn’t buy them prior our holiday so I crocheted them too and I also added tassels to decorate it. I had it envisioned something different but had to work with what I had on hands.
I am on my second bag as I write this. It goes much faster and needless to say I am addicted 🙂
Next I want to use some jersey yarn for this exact bag pattern. I think it would be awesome!
