Crochet Tuesday: Small Patterned Bag

patterned bag (1)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…  😉
