Crochet bag, Bow bag, Pattern No16, in both UK and US crochet terms

*** Pattern No 16 Bow Bag ***

This is a crochet pattern for a very pretty little bow girls handbag. It can be made in any colour you like, though I do think soft tones look extra cute! It is extremely quick to make so would be ideal for that 'urgent' present or if you wanted to make them in bulk for a craft fair/fundraiser. I also think it would look cute with a shorter strap for a flower girl!

Each bag measures approx 5.5in/14cm across and high with a 39in/99cm strap. This bag is made from the bottom-up and in one piece, so that there is no need for any major sewing at the end. I've also designed this bag so that it does not need a separate material lining (again to minimise the sewing!!).

Please feel free to sell the items you make from this pattern but please do NOT sell, distribute or reproduce this pattern in anyway. I would also appreciate you crediting my little shop when you sell the finished items :-). Thank you for your respect.

My patterns are written in both UK/European and US/American crochet terms in two separate files. The PDF file attached to this listing is written in UK/European terms. The zip file attached to this listing contains both the UK/European file and the US/American file. (If you are unsure which one to use, the UK/European file uses terms like htr=half treble and the US/American file uses terms like sc=single crochet and hdc=half double crochet. Hope this helps!)

Thanks so much for looking!! R♥

I ♥ Crochet!!!

I love all things crafty - knitting, sewing, lacemaking, embroidery, but my true passion is crochet. I was taught to crochet by a wonderful lady and am lucky to now be able to pass that knowledge on to others, in my classes and through my written patterns.

I hope you like my little designs. Happy Crocheting! R♥
