How to make the environment better with a Greek style cotton bag made of ecological yarn

Ecological Greek style cotton summer bag

I like a Greek style cotton bag

Summer bag

This cotton bag can be used during summer time! Take a towel, your sunglasses, a pull, a bikini and a lot more and go to the beach with this bag. Put even a picknick inside it!

I made this bag with an eye for the climate, the yarn is purely ecologically manufactured (GOTS label). The wire is thicker so I could crochet fast. Good to know, this bag is crochet around, so that there is no seam whatsoever. Nice so I didn’t have to sew!

Greek style

original Greek old mosaic tiles

I designed the pattern myself. It’s based on Greek old mosaic, refer to the image above. However the showed greek mosaic seems very easy, to crochet it, was a bit more tricky. It was a bit difficult to count and to know when to switch from colour. Both wires are kept together, it make changing easier and it also makes the bag sturdier.

I think I didn’t make any mistakes, but never be too sure. I think the old Greek did make mistakes too in this kind of drawings, don’t you think?

The different blue colours are a reference to the blue see near the coasts of Greece and lets me dream of a holiday on one of the islands of Greece. And to make you also dream, here I show a picture of a beach in Crete. You see, the bag suites very well there? Isn’t it?

  2. waw the picture is very good, thank you this article inspired many readers. Writer, what is the most difficult difficulty in the process of making choices and being consistent on the Greek style cotton bag, the most basic?

    1. Being consistent is not to exaggerate with Greek style things. First I also used fresco’s in the middle and that was too much of it! Also the size of the fresco’s was difficult to find.
