Instructions

In making the bottom of my bags I always make 2 bottoms and join them together for a sturdier bottoms.

Make 2 Bottoms

R1.  With your H hook and the Holly Berry yarn, make a magic Ring. CH 1 and 6 SC into the ring. Join with a SL ST in first SC and close the ring tightly. (6 SC)

R2.  CH 1, 2 SC in each ST around. Join with a SL ST in first SC. (12 SC)

R3. CH 1, 1 SC in first ST, 2 SC in next. Repeat till end. Join with a SL ST in first SC. (18 SC)

R4. CH 1, 1 SC in first  2 STS, 2 SC in next. Repeat till end. Join with a SL ST in first SC. (24 SC)

R13. CH 1, 1 SC in first  11 STS, 2 SC in next. Repeat till end. Join with a SL ST in first SC. (78 SC)

R14. CH 1, 1 SC in first  12 STS, 2 SC in next. Repeat till end. Join with a SL ST in first SC. (84 SC)

R15. CH 1, 1 SC in first  13 STS, 2 SC in next. Repeat till end. Join with a SL ST in first SC. (90 SC)

R16. CH 1, 1 SC in first  14 STS, 2 SC in next. Repeat till end. Join with a SL ST in first SC. (96 SC)

R17. CH 1, 1 SC in first  15 STS, 2 SC in next. Repeat till end. Join with a SL ST in first SC. (102 SC)

Fasten off and weave ends with the first circle. But in the second, do not fasten off we will continue to work with our bottoms by joining the two circle you just made. Remember wrong sides facing each other. Then SC both circles together and this will be R18.

R18. CH 1, SC in first ST and in all the stitches around. Join with a SL ST in first SC. (102 SC)

Change your hook. Use the J hook this time. I like to use a bigger hook for the body of this bag so that my stitches will be emphasized.

R19. CH 1, SC in first ST, DC in same ST. *Skip a ST, SC & DC in next ST* Repeat till end.  Join with a SL ST in first SC ( 102 STS)

R20.  CH 1, SC in first ST, DC in same ST. *Skip a ST, SC & DC in next ST* Repeat till end. Change COLOR to Eggshell.  Join with a SL ST in first SC ( 102 STS)

R21. CH 1, SC in first ST, DC in same ST. *Skip a ST, SC & DC in next ST* Repeat till end.  Join with a SL ST in first SC ( 102 STS)

R22. CH 1, SC in first ST, DC in same ST. *Skip a ST, SC & DC in next ST* Repeat till end.  Change color back to Holly Berry. Join with a SL ST in first SC ( 102 STS)

R23- 46. Repeat R 19 to 22.

R47. CH 1, SC in first ST, DC in same ST. *Skip a ST, SC & DC in next ST* Repeat till end.  Join with a SL ST in first SC ( 102 STS)

R48. Make room for the eyelets to be placed. In R48,  do as R20 but in every 8 stitches you have to make a CH 1 but do not skip any stitches of the previous row. And since all our STS are 102, there will be 3 groups of 10 stitches first before the CH1. You can decide where to make that one, it can be anywhere from the round. Then you will end up with 12 CH1. That means you will attach 12 eyelets for the cord to pass thru. But if you don't have any eyelets, it's just fine. Still, make those CH 1s and let the cord pass thru those CH 1's without the eyelets. Change Color to Eggshell. Join with a SL ST in first SC. ( 102 STS plus 12 CH 1s)

Remember it is better to attach your eyelets at the end when you bag is done and ready for the cords.


R49. CH 1, SC in each STS all the way around, skipping the CH 1s you make in R48. Change back to Holly Berry. Join with a SL ST in first SC. ( 102 SC)

R50.  CH1, SC in first ST, *skip 3 STS and make 7 long DC in next ST, skip 3 STS again and SC in next* Repeat till end, but in the last 6 STS, just skip 3 STS to squeeze in the last Shell Stitch with 7 long DC. You will have 13 Shells all in all.  Fasten off and weave all ends.


You can attach your eyelets at this point.



Make your strings, using your H J, make it as long as 4 meters long. There are a variety of crocheted cords on the web, especially on Youtube, but in this bag, I follow the one the Boye Crafts posted on their Instagram. Link here.

Small Patches for the cords.
Before starting to make the patches make sure to make at least 6 inches of the tail at the start and also at the end. This tails will be used in attaching the patches to the bag. Use H Hook.

Make 2.
R1. CH  6, SC in the 2nd CH from the hook. CH 1 and turn ( 5 SC)

R2 - R5. SC in each stitch till the end. CH 1 and turn ( 5 SC)

Make 1.

R1. CH 9, SC in the 2nd CH from the hook. CH 1 and turn (8 SC)

R2-R5. SC in each stitch till the end. CH 1 and turn ( 8 SC).

Attach your patches at the back of your bag, like in the picture below.

  


Flowers

Make 2. Use this as a stopper so that your cords will not be pulled out from the holes. Attached each at the end of the cords AFTER attaching it to your bag,

R1. With your H hook. Make a Magic Ring. CH 1, 6 SC into the ring. Closed the ring tightly and SL ST in first SC.

R2.  CH 1, 4 DC in first ST, CH 1, SL ST back in same ST. * SL ST into the next ST, CH 1, 4 DC, CH1 SL ST back into the same ST* Repeat until you will have each 6 STS a petal. Fasten off and weave all ends.

Insert strings into your bag like in the Video Below


Then after the strings are in place attach the flowers at the ends of the cord like in the picture below.

It is good if your strings are long enough because you can easily adjust this bag if the bearer is a little child or a grown up. So make it long enough for adjustments. 4 meters of strings is good enough already.


Now if you want to line your bag you can do so. This bag will be fine also if you decide not to line the bag.


Hope you also enjoy making this and don't forget to Tag me on Instagram and Twitter with your finished project and also like my Page in Facebook, Si Nanay Madel. I would love to see what you've done and Pin it also on Pinterest.
