Picture of Crochet Bag

Since I first started to crochet again, just a few months ago, I haven't been able to really finish any of the crocheted projects that I started except little things like bracelets (see my VHS Tape Bracelet and Floral Crochet Bracelet).
For this reason, I am particularly proud of this crocheted bag that I was finally able to finish! :D

It's made of 17 granny squares joined together with single crochets. I used one of the basic granny square patterns so it's really easy to do.
Of course you can choose a different pattern...I actually had the inspiration for this bag looking at all the different granny square bags sold online, and I decided to try and make one. It was quite hard to pick one because there are so many different styles! Take a look here

So, here is mine...I hope you like it!

Step 1: What you need:

  • Cotton thread n° 3 (I used two different colors)
  • crochet hook n° 4 - 1.75
  • piece of fabric
  • 4 curtain rings
  • pins
  • sewing machine
  • scissors
List of stitches:
  • chain stitch
  • slip stitch
  • single crochet - sc
  • half double crochet - hdc
  • double crochet - dc

Step 2: Granny Square - the beginning

This granny square is very easy to do and common too, so you probably know how to do it already if you are good at crocheting. But I am going to explain it anyway and I will try to be as clear as I can :)

First of all start with a slipknot, chain 6 and slip stitch in the slipknot to create a circle.
Chain 3. This will be counted as a dc.

Step 3: First Row

Make 2 dc and chain 2.
You have just made the first side of the square.

Make 3 dc and chain 2 (second side).
Repeat twice to create the other 2 sides of the squares.

Finally slip stitch in the first dc.

Great job Linda - it is beautiful!!!! You are talented! I always seem to go back to crocheting in the winter time ...so I've been doing more sewing than anything. But, this has inspired me to do some crocheting sooner! I love it!

Thank you Holly, I am so glad you like it! As you can probably see from the pictures, I am really, really bad at sewing so it's better if I keep crocheting :D
What a beautiful crochet bag!!! Awesome, Linda!
