Peacock Tail Bag CAL – bag & video tutorials completed

With a smile I look back on the last few weeks in which we have been making our Peacock Tail bag. Just a bit of assembly and finishing some details and our bag is all done. Is it just me, or do you also love the end result? You can find all the parts of the written pattern and many translations for the Peacock Tail Bag on Tatsiana’s blog.


Video tutorials

I have made step-by-step video tutorials to help you make your own bag. On my dedicated Peacock Tail bag page and 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.

Yarn & Colorway

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 are (were) two kits available that contain everything you need to make your bag; one in a Peacock colorway and the other in a Pastel colorway. Linen Soft is available from Wool Warehouse (UK/International), Paradise Fibers (US/CA), Deramores or your local Scheepjes stockist. I am using Linen Soft in the following colors: 2 balls of 614 as that is my main color, and 1 ball each of 622, 625, 626 and 627. 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. You can find all the details for my colorway in my color chart.

Final touches

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 ❤

With this my Peacock Tail bag is completed. I hope to see you again soon for a new project.

With love,

  1. I love your colours and thank you SO much for the wonderful videos – they really help make things easier. I was going to put a zip in my bag too – I think it looks so much better and stops everything falling out! I look forward to more of your videos. My daughter is using your “How to crochet” videos as she is just starting out by making the Last Dance blanket so a big thank you from her too.

  2. Your bag is lovely and I really like the idea of putting in a zipper. I find with bags that don’t close all the way I am always obsessively checking that everything is still inside and hasn’t fallen out! I have finished my crocheting but still don’t have a handle.
