Crochet Bag, Rainbow Heart Handbag Mini heart bunting, patt no28, in both uk and us terms

*** Pattern No 28 Rainbow Heart Handbag and Mini Heart Bunting ***

This is a pattern for a colourful rainbow heart-shaped crochet girls' handbag and a supercute matching mini bunting! Both are really simple to make and can easily be made in one sitting!

This bag uses chain basic sts: ss, ch, dc, tr and dtr sts (UK) or ss, ch, sc, dc and tr sts (US), so is ideal for beginners. The pattern includes lots and LOTS of photographs to help you through each step where the heart shape is formed. It is made in a 100% Cotton DK yarn but you could use a different yarn with a corresponding hook if you wanted.

The mini heart bunting is made with 7 hearts but you could easily add more to make a longer bunting, three of each colour might look nice?? :-)

The bag measures 6¼in/16cm high and 6in/15cm wide, with a strap that measures 38in/97cm. Each mini heart is 1⅜in/3.75cm high and 1½in/4cm wide with the seven heart bunting measuring 10½in/27cm in length.

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♥
