This really is a great idea to start my "A Granny A Day" plan, so I began with a very excited feeling! The result is load of solid squares like this:
Then I joined them together in the way like this, put handles on, sewed lining and here is my complete bag:
Opened with the lining inside:
I think maybe you want to know how to make it, so I tried to write down what I have done in case you need, hope it's useful for you.
Instruction for the bag:
You need to make 24 motifs (6 motifs in one color), each motif is about 9.5-10cm.
Size F 3.75mm crochet hook.
Cotton yarn is for your choice, as long as it reaches your gauge.
A pair of bag handles: you can order from your local store.
- Motif pattern and instruction: you can find here (thanks Teresa).
- Joining to form a bag:
With wrong side facing, work a row of sc along edges, work each sc through front loops only on both edges. Dash lines on diagram are where motifs folded and joined to both front and back to form side and bottom seams.
Note: Do not join the outside edges of the top 4 motifs on both sides as this a bag opening.
With right side facing and your main color yarn, work sc in each stitch along the outside edges of the top motifs on the bag. Weave all ends.
