Crocheted Produce Bag

Crocheted Produce Bag
Well, I thought since the produce bag was something I just made up real quick I should post the pattern. I am sure there are way better ones out there, but most of them end up decreasing at the end to get a smaller opening, but I wanted mine large so leafy stuff that I buy in multiple little bunches could poke out, like baby broccoli or bok choy. So here is the pattern, just in case you want to make a couple as well. Materials: 1 skein Lion Brand Organic Cotton Yarn (#680), or similar worsted weight yarn Size I-9 Crochet Hook Little scrap of fabric (optional) Rnd 1: Begin with an adjustable loop, and crochet 12 double crochet (dc) into the loop and pull tight. Rnd 2: *Chain 7, skip 1 dc and slip stitch in next dc.* Repeat around. Rnd 3: Chain 7, Slip stitch (slst) into 4th chain (ch) of round 2. Rnd 4: Ch 7, slst into the point where the last two rounds meet, then ch 7 and slst into the 4th ch of the last round as well. Rnd 16: Single crochet (sc) in every chain around, join with a slst.

Recycled Plastic Fat Bottom Bag  | My Recycled I present my plarn fat bottom bag that I crocheted using recycled plastic newspaper bags. You may remember me saying that it is difficult for me to obtain pretty colors in plastic bags for my crafting. Well thanks to a suggestion from a blogger friend, I asked my local library to save their newspaper bags for me. They have been giving me one pink and one orange plastic bag daily from their newspapers. You may notice that the pink shade on the last few rounds of the bag and handles are darker. As I mentioned this is my first fat bottom crocheted bag. Below you will find some pictures I took as I worked the pattern. Click on any of the photos to supersize them Here is shell started and also a photo after the base shell was completed. Here is the lining pinned in place before the gathering and the handles are crocheted. My Fat Bottom Bag Flap: Several people have asked about the flap I added and wanted instructions on how to create this flap. Mark the center 12 stitches on bag opening.

Spring Inspired Boutique Bags Boutique bags inspired by spring. I think the strappy pink one is my new favorite. What do you think? I decided to try out a bulkier yarn this time to create a sturdier bag. I used Lion Brand Baby's First Yarn. These bags follow the same basic pattern of the original Granny Stripe Boutique Bag with a few minor changes. Follow the this pattern up to round 10 then make the following changes. Rnd 11: Ch 1. Rnd 12: Ch 1. Rnd 13: Ch 1. I tested this Garden Rose pattern for Cheryl at the Flower Girl Cottage and thought it would be the perfect flower for the Strappy Boutique Bag. Rnd 11-13: Continue working. Straps (Make Two): Ch 31. This flower can be found at Lion Brand Yarn. I love this bag just as it is. These spring inspired boutique bags were mailed out this week to Justin at Coach Radio whom is the daddy to three little ladies. Wow! Wishing you all a Happy Easter!

crochet ric-rac Hey there! What are you up to this fine Monday morning? Since my post last week, I've had so many emails and comments asking about the recipe for homemade, hooked ric-rac, that I thought I'd do a little how to. Before we start there are a few things to keep in mind. I am using US crochet terminology.I usually use a size 2 hook but its fun to experiment. STEP ONE - Chain four. STEP TWO - dc into the fourth chain from the hook, ie. the first chain you made. STEP THREE - Do another dc into the same chain as in step two, chain, then do a final dc into the same chain. STEP FOUR - Chain three. STEP FIVE - Turn your work so that the crochet you just did is up the top as per the photo. Then do two dc's, chain and another dc into the chain space from the previous round. Then chain three. and turn. STEP SIX - Repeat step five until you reach your desired length. Always ch3 after each cluster and then turn. Fasten off. Here's the whole thing again in crochet language; Chain 4 (only this once) See ya!
