I recently completed this small patterned bag as a present for a friend. I found the pattern for this Granny Stripe Boutique Bag on TangledHappy.com
I love the pattern. It’s so cute and works up really quickly and easily. I made only one change to the pattern. Instead of sewing up the bottom of the bag I inserted a flat bottom.
This is what I did:
Ch = chain
hdc = half treble crochet / half double crochet
Row 1: ch 7.
Row 2: work 1 hdc in 2nd ch from hook, 5 hdc, ch 1
Row 3-15: 6 hdc, ch1
Row 16: 6 hdc, finish off
Now turn the bag inside out and sew the bottom in. Turn the bag back and you have a nice smooth finish.
Oh yes, and I also filled the bag up with chocolate… 😉
