DIY Toy : Crochet Doll Bag
I learn crochet by reading tutorials online and also from this book called ” Uncommon Crochet “. During the learning phase, I practice making swatches, little swatches of circles , squares, and ovals. Here, the doll’s bag is made from a circle swatch, about 10 cms in diameter. I use cotton yarn ( those used in making doily ), and did 7 rounds of half double crochet with a no. 3 hook. Actually , you can just make it with any small hook. As long as the bag is proportional to the doll , it will turn out fine.
Here’s the picture tutorial :
- Crochet circle ( mine is 10 cm in diameter ), two faux leather straps measuring 17 cm each, scrap felt circle, cut a little smaller than the crocheted one, and a 3.5×2 cm pc of rectangular felt ( to be used as inner pocket ; I like details. )
- Sew the faux leather straps onto the crocheted circle.
- Sew the rectangular felt onto the circular felt. Then sew this piece onto the crocheted circle.
- Fold it in half and sew both ends to make the side of the bag. Mine are about 2 cm long.
I also have a Fail! piece when I tried making *something*. I turned that into a hat. Free toys for my kids :P. Mwahhaaha.
