Crochet bag, Rainbow bag, Pattern No14, in both UK and US crochet terms

*** Pattern No 14 Rainbow Bag ***

When you need a little ray of sunshine in your life, what can beat a brightly coloured rainbow bag!! This is a crochet pattern for a very sweet rainbow-coloured bag with flap and button.

This design is very simple as it's made in one piece, then folded and the sides are sewn together. It works up very quickly and creates a good sized bag with plenty of impact! The bag measures approx 5.25in/13.5cm across, 4.5in/12cm long with a 40in/101.5cm 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 this pattern 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♥
