Finished!

Last Sunday I posted my crocheted bag in progress…today I finished it. Here she is:

I got the idea from Pinterest…I have 39 pins on my “Crochet” board and now I’ve made FOUR (4) of them!! I think that’s pretty good! I got this idea from Attic24, you can find the pattern here: Crochet Bag Pattern. I highly encourage you to check out Lucy’s blog, I think I’ve pinned about 10 of her crochet projects! I wish I was crafty enough to create my own patterns…maybe someday!

I started out crocheting in the round and just switched colors each row….it got a little bit tedious, but I love how it turned out! The bag’s top opening measures 18 inches! If I was to make this bag again I would stop increasing the circle earlier so that it would be a little smaller! The whole bag is double crocheted, except the handles which are single crocheted.

Lucy fits perfectly in this bag! She didn’t seem to mind when I traipsed around the house with her in it to show it off 🙂

Here’s an up close view of the stripes. Don’t you love the colors? So fun.

Here is a picture of the handle. I did one row of each color in a single crochet, then went all the way around in the last color (in this case brown) to give it a finished look. I sewed it to the bag using brown yarn which blends in nicely.

There was no one around to take my picture with the bag (except Lucy!) so I resorted to the self portrait in the mirror.  This gives you a good visual for how big the bag is! I think I’m going to use it to tote around my craft projects.

Isn’t that the cutest iPhone cover ever? I’m sad because it is starting to wear out and I can’t find one I like nearly as well. I ordered a crystal clear one and I’m thinking about using scrap paper to make my own, but that’s another story…
