2  Re: granny square bag PATTERN ADDED in Crochet: Completed Projects by jakesgirl on: October 05, 2005 08:58:42 PM
Thanks omegabic! Here's the pattern:

Square (Make 20): With color A, ch 4; join with a sl st in first ch to form a ring.
Rnd 1: Ch 5 (counts as a dc and a ch-2 sp), [3 dc in ring, ch 2] 3 times, 2 dc in ring; join with a sl st in 3rd ch of ch-5.
Rnd 2: (Sl st, ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) all in first sp, ch 1, [(3 dc, ch 2, 3dc) all in next sp, ch 1] 3 times; join to top of ch-3. Fasten off.
Rnd 3: With right side facing, attach color B in any ch-2 sp; (ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) all in same sp, *ch 1, 3 dc in next ch-1 sp, ch 1**, (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) all in next ch-2 sp; rep from * around, end at **; join. Fasten off.

Sew squares together following diagram.


Top Edging: With right side facing, attach color A at top edge; ch 1, work sc all around top edge, increasing and decreasing as necessary to keep work flat; join with a sl st to first sc. Fasten off.

Strap: With two strands of color A held together as one, ch 100. Fasten off. Weave through corner spaces at top of bag. Sew ends of chain together. Weave in yarn ends.
(I DIDN'T USE THIS FOR MY STRAP, INSTEAD I HELD TWO STRANDS TOGETHER AND CH ABOUT 5-7 OR WIDTH YOU WOULD LIKE STRAP TO BE, THEN SC UNTIL THE STRAP IS THE LENGTH YOU WOULD LIKE. SEW ENDS TO CORNERS OF BAG AND WEAVE IN ENDS. I WANTED A STURDIER STRAP. )

Front tie: With two stands of color A held together as one, ch 75. Fasten off. Weave in yarn ends. Make a knot at each end of chain. Weave chain through center front and back (from front to back to front); tie in a bow for bag closure.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FEEL FREE TO PM ME! HOPE THAT HELPS.

4  I'm obsessed with purses! IMG heavy in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by jakesgirl on: September 21, 2005 09:03:26 PM
I love purses. Until I found Craftster I bought purses all the time, but then I saw all the great ideas here and I've just gone crazy making them from old clothes or whatever else I can think of. Here's a some I've made in
the last few months.

5  my (old) favorite shirt in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by jakesgirl on: September 21, 2005 08:46:21 PM
I was cleaning out my closet one day and I just couldn't get rid of this shirt even though I hadn't worn it in a really long time. So...of course I made a purse.


I added some ribbon and a button to make it more girlish.

Inside:


That's Jasmine seeing if she'll fit inside.

I used the shirt for the front and the lining and some old gray pants for the rest.

7  really old jacket=new purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by jakesgirl on: September 21, 2005 08:31:17 PM
My dad had this old corduroy suit jacket from the 70's and a tie that matched that he was *finally* getting rid of so I got it before the trash or Goodwill did and made this with the outer pockets.

10  granny square bag in Crochet: Completed Projects by jakesgirl on: September 21, 2005 07:15:39 PM
I made this with a pattern for Red Heart Hokey Pokey that I got from the Red Heart website.
I used my own colors and added some extra things to make it a little different.
