This Quick Little Bag is just that, and it came about due to a lack of pockets! I was at a trade show and realized most of my outfits for the long weekend had no pockets. I had a big shoulder bag, but my phone and business cards kept getting lost in it. So I grabbed some Red Heart Unforgettable and a crochet hook and whipped up this bag. Problem solved! I made a new sample for the pattern that is a little thinner, longer, and has a flap. Enjoy!
This week I am very pleased to share patterns from ELK Studio ~ handcrafted crochet designs with you. ELK Studio is owned and run by Kathy Lashley, a very talented and wonderful woman. Kathy is a southern girl in the best of ways! Her designs often show her country roots, making them feel very warm and comforting. She uses wonderful stitch patterns to bring interest to her designs. It’s no surprise that her designs are very popular.
Kathy is currently hosting a Christmas CAL, and it’s awesome! You can find the info about the CAL on her blog, here. You can also join her Facebook group to share your photos and chat with others about the CAL. There are 2 patterns in the CAL, a cowl and matching hat, and both patterns are written for worsted weight and bulky yarn, so you can choose!
Here are the names and links of each pattern, along with a little something about each one.
Showing off your USA pride can be so fun!! So for this Round Up I have found some great red white and blue crochet patterns to share with you today. Some of these patterns are clearly made as patriotic crochet patterns, and some just work well for it, but either way, here is a nice variety of crochet ways to celebrate your country!
It’s so much fun to be able to change the look of an outfit by changing the bag you carry with it. It’s also wonderful to have just the right bag to bring whatever you need with you. So I have put together a collection of crochet bags of all shapes and sizes for whatever occasion or use you may need!
Here are the names and links of each pattern, along with a little something that each designer has to say about them.
Sometimes you need to bring your yarnie projects along with you! This bag lets you do that in style. The fun ruffles and flowers add a fun flair. It is big enough to carry a work in progress, but not so big it is unwieldy.
I seem to have a surplus of Granny Squares hanging about my work room. I’m not really sure where they all come from. So, I have started turning them into bags of various sizes and styles. They make great gifts! Especially the little ones turned into little bags for kiddos.
I was recently asked to review a book of Granny Squares, so I thought I would take the opportunity to show you one method I use to turn some Grannies into bags.
So I wanted a fun snack bag for the girls to use in kindergarten. It seemed like a good excuse to make a new pattern. The snack bag came out adorable, and I felt the need to share it for free with all of blogland! So here you go, my friends.
