Girly Bags V

One of my colleagues loved the Bracelets and Earrings my daughters (of 8 and 6) made a couple of weeks ago for King's Day and asked if she could buy some of them for her nieces. 

To wrap them up nicely, she asked me to crochet some girly bags. I want to make about eight bags (but I already have ten by now), so she has something to choose from. In a couple of weeks there will be a garage sale in the little village where my brother lives and my daughters have planned to participate with their earrings and bracelets. They can sell the bags my colleague doesn't want, too, and my daugthers can keep all the earnings. I just like it how they learn to deal with money this way.

The fifth two bags we called Behemian Girl and Ice Cream.



Together my daugthers and me made up the 'themes' of the bags, but a basic pattern for the bags you can buy here.

The pattern for the ice cone I made up myself.

    1. Hi Susanne,
      I had the basic pattern from an Etsy shop (link is in the post above). With my daughters I made up a theme for each little bag. Where I used patterns from others, for the embellishments like the icecream cone and the kokeshi for example, I mentioned them in the relevant post, but most of them I made up myself.
