I have, once again, posted this late. I should just write these the day before and schedule them, shouldn’t I? Well, anyway, today we are . . . Oh yeah, we’re making a bag! My aunt saw the granny square blanket I made and requested a bag made out of granny squares. Yes, a bag. Out of granny squares. So, I tried, and made this.
- 16 granny squares
- yarn for sewing them together and the handles
- a tapestry needle
Join 4 squares into a strip and make 4 strips. Then sew or crochet the four stripes together according to the drawing below.
For each strap, ch 90, then 3 rows single crochet. Make 2, then crochet or sew them on the bag. After that, make a row of single crochet around all edges (both bag and strap). And . . . admire the hideous/beautiful creation that was brought into existence by your hands. The good part is I got paid for the bag. The bad part is, it was only $5.
