~ Grass and Flowers Crochet Bag


Hello everyone! I am very happy you like the dotty square pattern on my last post. Thank you for all your sweet comments and compliments. I really appreciate! I made 24 squares and here is what I turned them into: a granny bag! Some of you guessed I would make a blanket - that's a lovely idea for my next projects! :)


This bag actually was done, packed and sent to the birthday girl on July 31, but I was unwell and too busy the last few days to post about it. I made the same bag a while ago, with solid granny square pattern and different type of yarn. I'm still using it and love it.


I worked very hard on the lining for this bag. My previous one doesn't have a zipper so I'm afraid to carry important personal stuff like a wallet or so. This time I managed to sew a zipper to secure the bag, and a small zipper for the small inside pocket too.


Even this little piece to hold one end of the zipper took me a lot of effort - sew and unsew - again and again until I got pleased with it.


A look from top with the zipper closed:

I named this bag "Grass and Flowers", as I love the "green grass" look when it was all joined together, the dots in center of each square and the lining fabric are beautiful flowers that I really liked. The only thing is, it no longer stayed with me!


Thank you so much for dropping in. Wishing you all a gorgeous weekend!!!

~ See you soon! ♥

Very nice bag and the perfect lining. I always shy away from zippers! How did you make that lovely handle?

Wow! Great job with the lining. I have the same handles in yellow. I haven't made the bag yet as I am not sure how to line it. I wish I could do zippers like this. The bag is perfect.
Love.

Awesome bag. I love how it came together. If I could sew better might attempt one myself; but...that's not a skill I consider myself any good at it. Love the handle too. Very nice.
