1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Adorable Crochet Backpack on: February 09, 2013 02:55:15 PM
I made this sweet little backpack for my daughter's little girl.  (She's a nanny and the little girl is 2.)  The backpack with the flowers is the same pattern.

Wouldn't this be a fun gift for a little girl on Easter or a Spring/Summer birthday?

The next time I make it, I'll post the instructions.

Thanks everyone for the compliments.  In answer to your questions:

1.  How much yarn does 1 washcloth take?  I can get about 2.5 washcloths out of one Sugar & Cream.

2.  How much is the organic yarn?  The organic yarn is about $8.00 each at Joann's & Michaels.  I also get about 2.5 washcloths from those.

Just made up a bunch of these handmade washcloths for spares.  I keep them for teacher gifts, birthdays, etc.  The organic cotton ones are super soft, but much more expensive than the regular 100% cotton ones.

Here's the Instructable so I don't have to retype it:  http://www.instructables.com/id/Free-Crochet-Pattern-Not-Your-Grandmas-Crochet-/  (I hope it's okay to put this link here.)

Hi Teachart!

Yes, the hot glue works great.  I've had my home filled with my rag baskets for years and have yet had to fix one.

Good luck!

You can increase randomly - no specific pattern.  Just be sure you increase by the numbers given.

Good luck.

You can use hardware store rope or use actual 'cording' from Joann's or Hobby Lobby.  I buy mine from Joann's (fabric section) and they have 4 different sizes.  I prefer the biggest only because the baskets work up faster.

Sorry that I don't have the exact measurements.

I had forgotten that last year I made this sweet little Halloween basket for my little girl to trick-or-treat with.  I haven't made any rag baskets in a few months because I've been busy with my other crafts, BUT this adorable thing makes me want to start up again!

Here's the link to the written tutorial (no pictures in the tutorial yet):


Good luck!  Send me an email if you have any problems.  Oh!  And be sure to post your new basket here so we can see your creation.
