Mickey Bag (Tunisian Crochet)

Updated on April 16, 2012

Tunisian Mania

I was watching a video on Youtube, A lady had made a beautiful Mario blanket with the help of Tunisian Crochet. I was so thrilled with the idea that I tried to make something for myself. Up came the idea of Making this cool Mickey bag.

Tunisian Crochet is done with a long crochet hook, with a stopper at the end. Being longer in size than the crochet hook, it helps to pick up more stitches at a time. With the help of graphs and different patterns, a whole new scenery can be created, from cartoon characters to human portraits.

One can make different things with their own imaginations, from bags to blankets and even some accessories.
