Crochet bag, Curved U-shaped Bag, Pattern No9, in both UK and US crochet terms

*** Pattern No 9 Curved Bag ***

This is a crochet pattern for a gorgeous little curved girls handbag or purse. The design is simple but striking, with the contrasting border and central flower. It would make a lovely gift for a little girl or for making in volume to sell at fundraising or charity events.

The bag measures approx 4.75in/12cm across and 5.25in/13cm long with a 33in/84cm strap and a flower that covers the button hole loop.

I've designed this pattern so that there is very little sewing to be done at the end as everything is crocheted together to avoid too many tails!!

All of my patterns state exactly how much yarn I've used, by colour and weight, to allow you to utilise any yarn stash you may have!! I have also included photographs in this pattern (5 pages) to help explain certain steps. And this bag is designed so that it does not need a material lining, making it quicker to finish!!

Please note you may sell the items you make from this pattern but you may not sell, distribute or reproduce this pattern. 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 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 for stopping by! 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♥
