To make this bag you will need 6 balls of Scheepjes Linen Soft yarn in 5 colors; for the main color of the bag you will need 2 balls and of the other 4 colors you will need 1 ball of each. There were two kits available that contained everything you need to make your bag; one in a Peacock colorway and the other in a Pastel colorway. To make these bags you will now have to make your own kit by selecting the materials you need yourself.
The Peacock kit contains 1 x 603, 1 x 606, 1 x 608, 1 x 614 and 2 x 611. The Pastel kit contains 1 x 612, 1 x 613, 1 x 624, 1 x 629 and 2 x 619. In addition to the yarn you will need a bag handle, 2 30mm D-rings, an 18mm magnetic clasp or zipper, interfacing and fabric for the lining.
I did not follow the colorway set in the pattern; I am always very bad at following color instructions. I used 6 balls of Scheepjes Linen Soft yarn in the following colors: 2 balls of 614 as that is my main color, and 1 ball each of 622, 625, 626 and 627. I made my bag with a 3mm hook.
I did not follow the color placement as given in the CAL exactly. You can find all the details for my colorway in my color chart where I break down the colors per row and side.
I have made step-by-step video tutorials to help you make your own bag. On my YouTube channel I have grouped all the videos together. I have a separate video for the front and back parts and a video showing how to assemble everything at the end.
When you have completed the crochet part of the bag there is just one more part left to do, making the lining and attaching the closing clasp. I will be honest, I am very bad at sewing but luckily I am blessed with a mother that is good at it. She not only made the lining for me, she also made a matching zipper into my bag. This makes for even better closing of my bag than with the magnetic clasp. I love my mom <3
With this my Peacock Tail bag is completed and if you made a bag of your own I would love to see it. Feel free to share your work with me on my Facebook page, in my Facebook group It’s all in a Nutshell Crochet Nuts, tag me in one of your posts on Instagram or use #itsallinanutshell.
