|It's A Free Pattern!|
Tangled Happy's Granny Stripe Boutique Bag
I whipped up this adorable little crocheted gift bag in one evening last night.
It's a free pattern from Sara at Tangled Happy (here).
There were suppose to be 17 shells in a round but my first bag only had 14. I decided to keep going even if my count must have been off...and I'm glad I did because it turned out beautifully. I didn't do the handle just right but again I was able to fix it at the end. Sometimes I find it's better to just try out a pattern even if it isn't perfect. I'm sure as I practice this pattern I will get it down right. I'm very happy with the results!
Sara says this is her first written crochet pattern. All I can say is I hope to see more patterns from Sara.
Sara mentions that it's the perfect size to hold Nintendo DS and iPods. She would love to hear your feedback if you do make one.
I made this for an Polly Anna gift exchange...it's the perfect size to insert a gift card.
|Add A Pretty Flower|
I added a pretty little flower in white and embellished it with a pearl button. I used Loops & Threads Silky Soft worsted 100% acrylic yarn in red and an "I" hook.
The flower pattern is sort of based on our beloved Atttic24 Teeny Tiny Flowers pattern (here).
|Is This Adorable or What?|
I think I'm going to make lots more of these.
They are just right for that little special handmade gift!
This is perfect to post for REDnesday!
