Crochet Panda Shoulder Bag


I've been wanting to make this little girl a bag. But can't seem to find the right pattern. I want it to be just small. Just enough for this little one put on her little things. Then I came up with this Cute Panda Bag. The yarn I used are purchased locally. It's cotton and is 8 ply, so you can substitute any yarn with that weight and type.

Please excuse my niece's outfit. It's really not that easy to make a 2 year old  model your work, even if that work is for her. So no time to change clothes or even to tie her hair. lol.



Materials
  • Cotton yarn (8 ply) in black and white
  • G /4.0 mm crochet hook
  • 2 Metal rings
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Scissors



Stitches used:
  • magic ring
  • ch - chain
  • sc - single crochet
  • dc - double crochet
  • hdc - half double Crochet
  • sl st - slip stitch



Instructions:
Round 1.   Ch 23. 2 Sc in  2nd chain from the hook, sc in each chain until the end (20 sc) with 5 sc at the last ch. Then continue on working to the other side of the chain to complete the round.

Attaching the metal rings for the strap.

Round 31.  Sc in each 35 stitches, then attached the metal rings with 5 sc . ( Here's a video on how to attached metal rings. In this video I used hdc, but the principle is still the same with sc. )

Round 32. Sc in each stitches on both loops now. Join with a sl st in first sc of the round, ch 1.

Fasten off and weave all ends using your tapestry needle.


 For the straps. 

Row 1. Attached your yarn to your metal rings and sc 5, ch 1 and turn. 

Row 2-150.  Sc in each stitch, chain 1 and turn. ( you can adjust the length of the straps by adding more rows or lessening the rows of 5 single crochets.) At the end. Single Crochet 5 into the other metal ring. Fasten off and weave all ends using your tapestry needle.



For the panda face.

Ears. (Make 2 pairs of circles or 4 circles )

Round 1.  Make 6 sc into the magic ring . Do not join , just continue to work into the second round.

Round 2.  2 sc in each around.

Round 3. SC in first, 2 sc in next. Repeat around, then sl st into the next stitch, and and leave a long tail for sewing later. Only leave a long tail into 2 of the 4 circles.

Then with 4 circles join 2 circles by sewing them together using your tapestry needle. Do this also to the other pair.  And attached your ears in the front of the bag, about 12 to 15 sc apart.
