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

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
