Am about to make my second bag, thank u so much for a fantastic idea


If I'm wanting to do this in a single colour yarn would I just chain one at the start and join each row with a slip stitch?


@Joanne I found that too. I think it’s because my initial chains were wider than a normal crochet chain and so I needed to add a few extra DCs to make up for it. Once I did this in round one it was fixed from then on.

Such a lovely idea.....and pattern too. Have now made 4 of them, and have a couple more to do.


I'm using Scheepjes Riverwash to use up some bits. My work tapers in the further I go along - no dropped or missed stitches. It's a bit tight round the canvas bag and I've had to increase a few more stitches on the ends as I go. How did you get yours to be so nice and even and flat?.


These look fantastic, just ordered bags and needles from Amazon, plan to make for granddaughter and then make them to go in party bags for her friends at her 6th birthday party - brilliant idea


Do you continue the 2dc,2dc on the ends on every row or
just at the beginning?

Oh Lucy that is just what I need to keep me busy and happy. Thank you for the detailed photo tutorial and notes. God bless xxx


What a genius idea, thank you for sharing. Can’t wait to try one myself. They will make great Christmas stocking fillers


Hi Lucy, could you share what colors of Rico dk you chose for the bag? I’d love to get the same colors. Thank you! Kate


Thank you! I have some cotton yarns in coordinating colors and I had no idea what to do with them. I suppose this will be perfect Christmas gift.
And - I can sew the bags as well, right?

Hey brilliant pattern and tutorial, certainly will be making these.... but quick question could I use DK yarn as thats all I have


I got some very similar pencil cases via Ebay.....similar price, only took a couple of days to arrive.......


I Haven’t crocheted in ages and this looks like a great little project to get me back into hooking. Unfortunately the bags you get commission on are already sold out.


These look great Lucy. I've ordered the bags and have lots of wool to choose from in my stash, can't wait to get started.


Bags and wool ordered. I am so excited 😊 thank you Lucy xx


Thank you so much - I haven’t picked my hooks up for a while but you’ve inspired me as always 🌈


Lucy thank you so much for this.Beautiful,imaginative,vivacious,colourful and practical - much like yourself? ❤️👍
