A day at the beach is a slice of heaven.  Sand squishing between toes.  Waves of water lapping over feet and then beckoning you out to deeper seas.  And this delightful Sand and Sea Wine Bottle Bag Pattern.

This crochet wine bottle bag pattern is a day on the lake captured in one delectable design.  I love everything about a day spent on water.  A long barefoot walk on a sandy shore with the sun on my back and the breeze from the lake keeping my body cool as the waves lap my feet.  Or the thrill of a fast boat ride.  The boat skipping across the water blowing wind and droplets on my face.

I love the smells of a day on the water too.. a little bit fishy… the fresh air skimming the top of the water.. happy birds looking for a meal.  If I could capture all those wonderful feelings into one crochet project, this would be it.

I’ve taken my traditional wine bag pattern and added a bit of waves to a few rows and then added some cute little fish to the ties.  The waves are achieved by crocheting a row with stitches of varying heights and then alternating that stitch pattern on the next row to get us back to straight rows again.

And the darling little orange fish on this wine bag are worked in a magic ring and are quick and easy to make out of a few yards of scrap yarn.

I like my fish swimming in the middle of the shallow and deep water, so you’ll find this tie is a bit shorter than the tie on this crochet bottle cover.  I sewed on the tiniest buttons I could find for the fish eyes.  You could also embroider french knots instead if you’d like.
