Pattern begins here

For this project, we will start by making the front and back panels (which are identical); then we will be making the single strap.

Once all these pieces are crocheted, we will be assembling them together using the mattress stitch (everything will be explained in detail below).

Front and back panels (identical)

Ch 4, sl st to form a ring.

1: Ch 2 (=HDC), place 9 HDC inside the ring (=10 HDC total). Sl st to 1st ch 2 to close off round.

2: Ch 2 (=HDC), place another HDC inside the first stitch (=2 HDC together in one stitch). Place 2 HDC inside next HDC until eor (=20 HDC total). Sl st to 1st ch 2 to close off round.

3: Ch 2 (=HDC), place another HDC inside the first stitch (=2 HDC together in one stitch). Place HDC in next st, [2 HDC in next st, 1 HDC in next st] until eor (=30 HDC total). Sl st to 1st ch 2 to close off round.

4: Ch 2 (=HDC), place another HDC inside the first stitch (=2 HDC together in one stitch). Place HDC in next 2 st, [2 HDC in next st, HDC in next 2 st] until eor (=40 HDC total). Sl st to 1st ch 2 to close off round.

Front panel

Fasten off and tidy up all loose ends.

Create strap

Ch 70. Slip stitch through 2nd chain, and each chain across until the eor.

Strap

Sew bag together

Place both panels on top of each other symmetrically (see photo). Place the two stitch markers on each top sides to outline the top opening of this bag.

You can either use a loose end, or attach a piece of yarn to the stitch next to the stitch marker. Now with your tapestry needle, start sewing your project in using the mattress stitch.

Place stitches until you reach the second stitch marker.

Fasten off and tidy up all loose ends.

Sew front and back panels together

Sew your strap onto the bag

Place your bag on a flat surface, and sew your strap onto your project.

Place strap into bag, inside the side of each side of the project, making sure you have 4 cm (=1,5 inches) of strap inside the bag.

Sew into project with yarn, making sure you do not twist strap when sewing it onto both sides of project

Sew your straps into the project securely, making sure your stitching will not be apparent once the bag is turned inside out so that the right side is facing (after all the sewing has been done).

Repeat this process on each side of your bag to secure strap.

Fasten off and tidy up all loose ends.

Turn your project inside out, so that the right side is now facing out.

Hay, could we have pictures of the completed item, not the first step on the opening page, and also on the instructions page.
