Crochet Bag

After making this little lunch bag for me, my oldest daughter wanted a bag of her own of course. I had some pink polkadot left over after making the lunch bag and with some yarn, a crochet hook and a sewing machine I created this little bag for her:


Bag closed with drawstring


Bag open


Bottom

For who wants a pattern of the triangle grannies: I used the same pattern that I used for this bunting (with tutorial)!

  9. This little bag is adorable. I can see why your daughter wanted one. Crocheting is definately one of my talents. Tried it once and I did it way too tight.
