Tartan Brace, Hand knitted and crocheted Handbag with Vintage buttons.

Tartan Brace, Hand knitted and crocheted Handbag with Vintage buttons.
Love this


Tartan Brace, is a Hand knitted, crocheted and sewn handbag, with a pair of Child's Button Loop Tartan themed braces as the handles. The handbag has a short flap over top and vintage button closure, with vintage button detail to the back of the handbag.

This is a handmade handbag, from a yarn which is a blend of 60% cotton and 40% linen, and has been both knitted and crocheted. The main body of the handbag has been knitted in two desgins, a series of horizontal sections of carried loop design and plain knit and pearl sections, giving added texture and overall rustic look. The edges of the handbag have then been crocheted together, along with the front edge of the short flap over top, including the central button loop closure.

A set of slightly elaticated, actual child's braces, have been securely sewn, in the russet toned yarn, to the handbag, to act as both a design feature, and functioning handles. The front leather button loops, also serve as part of the handbag closure. The straps would sit over your arm.

The handbag has been further fully lined with white 100% cotton material, to make this handbag more useable and durable. I have added an internal front, full width pocket, to allow for segregation of items within your handbag.

The handbag is roughly rectangular in shape, measuring approx 20cms in height, excluding the handles and approx 24 to 25cms cms in width. Including the handles, the handbag measures approx 36cms in total length.


This is a unique handmade item, fully hand knitted, crocheted and hand stitched by myself, to my own unique design.

This handbag can be hand washed with care, but I would suggest sponge cleaning, rather than immersing in water, due to the leather button loops on the braces, then drying flat to retain its shape.

Using braces as a strap was a quirk of fancy! This quirky russet handbag will go with every outfit is just what every lady should have at her disposal. I felt this handbag would be perfect for all seasons, or just for someone with a love of anything quirky and unique.
