Crochet bag, Flower-shaped bag, Pattern No19, in both UK and US crochet terms
*** Pattern No 19 Flower-shaped Bag ***
This is a crochet pattern for a sweet little flower-shaped girls handbag. Make lots of them and you can have your own little garden!
The design creates a spacious bag with a textured centre, contrasting border and button closure. The bag measures approx 5in/12.5cm across and down with a 37.5in/95cm strap.
It would make a lovely gift for a little girl or for making in volume to sell at fundraising or charity events.
As with my other bags, 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 also include photographs in the patterns to help explain certain steps. And my bags are designed so that they do not need a material lining, making them quicker to finish!!
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♥
