I love GIR from Invader Zim so I just had to make a bag  Grin I wear a lot of skirts without pockets and I hate having a purse so I figured I would crochet a small bag to carry my stuff in. I still need to put some velcro in the pocket to keep it shut. I haven't decided on if I want to keep the main part closed or not, I kinda like it open.

What do you think?

I will post the pattern for free if anyone is interested.

Ok here is the pattern:


By: AprilDraven

For Personal Use only

Hook size: 3.25 MM for the pocket and H hook for the rest of the bag

Yarn: 100% Acrylic Worsted Weight 4 ply

Rnd: round
Sc: single crochet
Ss: slip stitch
FO: Fasten off

Make the Gir pocket first so you can make sure you are making the bag wide enough.
With 3.25MM hook

Ch 31, turn, sc in 2nd chain from hook and in every sc across, ch 1, turn, 15 sc then start the chart.

Crochet loose or else it will turn out looking more like an hour glass than a rectangle. (That is what happened to mine) when you finish the pocket,if you want, sc around the whole thing 3 rounds. FO

The body of the bag: Use H hook

Ch 31, turn, sc in 2nd loop from hook and in every stitch across.

ch 1, Sc 80 rows. (Or until your pocket fits) *NOTE: If chaining 31 isnt enough for your pocket to have about a half an inch clearance on both sides chain some more.

Fold in half and sew up the sides

Turn inside out

At the top of the bag where the seam is, count 10 stitches on each side of the seam. The seam being in the middle and 20 stitches total. Attach yarn and sc 20 stitches. (I hope this makes sense)

Ch 1, turn, sc2tog, 16 sc, sc2tog (18)

Ch 1, turn, sc2tog, 14 sc, sc2tog (16)

Ch 1, turn, sc2tog, 12 sc, sc2tog (14)

Ch 1, turn, sc2tog, 10 sc, sc2tog (12)

Ch 1, turn, sc2tog, 8 sc, sc2tog (10)

Ch 1, turn, sc2tog, 6 sc, sc2tog (Cool

Ch 1, turn, sc2tog, 4 sc, sc2tog (6)

Ch 1, turn, sc2tog, 2 sc, sc2tog (4)

For 50 rows: ch 1, 4 sc, turn

Repeat for the other side and sew the 2 straps tog.

Attach green yarn and sc around the front and back edges of the bag.

I love this bag!  I might just have to add it to my To-Do List (so... maybe I'll end up making it in 2017 or something... ^_-)

Excellent work ^_^
