Free Pattern at Michaels.com: Blue Slushee Drawstring Bag

Screen Shot 2013-07-01 at 3.42.26 PM

Happy Monday! New free crochet pattern! Michaels.com asked me to use one of their new yarns, Loops & Threads Impeccable Brights, with a “Poolside” theme, so I designed this slushee-themed draw string bag to pop your essentials in while you cool off in the water! Yeah, that’s a real straw!Β Edit, June 4, 2014: Please find the patternΒ here on my blog. Michaels.com is currently re-vamping their pattern/project section, and the above Michaels.com link is disabled for now.

To re-inforce the shape of this bag, I re-used a 32 oz. takeout soup container, like this one. I have also seen 32 oz. containers at Target. The bag will still hold its shape pretty well without a container inside as long as you don’t go putting 50 pounds of stuff in there!

Have so much fun with this pattern! I plan to make them in 3 different flavors for Renegade Craft Fair SF next month!

    So amazingly awesome! Couldn’t find the soup container at target though…I may just have to break down and buy from amazon because once my friends see these I know I’ll have to make more! Thinking of making either a cola or cherry color for the slushee part though! Love love love!

      I have a BUNCH from Amazon and was thinking of selling singles on Etsy as supplies, but they are kinda big, and I think shipping them will make them seem pricier than they should be! Order some take out ! πŸ˜‰

    Love, love, love this!

  14. I love this! I am envisioning this as a pink soft serve as well, I guess I will have to put this on my list, right after order won ton soup from Chinese take out!

    Crochet Pattern of the Year! Thank you for creating and sharing this clever and delightful pattern. I made three so far. (See link above.) I used 32-oz yogurt containers for the lining. They are wider or less tall than soup containers so I decreased the cup by two rounds. Either that or I didn’t check my gage and made the cup too big. OK, I admit that it’s the latter.

    You ROCK TWINKIE! I’ve had the Slushee bag on my Ravelry favorite for some time, and when I went to print the pattern from Michaels.com today it was gone! Thank-you very much for posting it to your blog. The Slushee Cup bag will be a perfect item for the Knit and Crochet Show give exchange this summer. You really saved the day for me!!
