DIY : Granny Squares Crochet Bag with Lining
Continuing on from my last post where I failed miserably trying to make a food cover, I turned the crocheted piece into a bag. I made the inner bag one block smaller all around to create a scallop effect around the bag. I totally love this !
To create the granny squares, I use this basic pattern.
Then I lay out my pieces like so :
and start exchanging colors into different color blocks. I don’t know how other people do it but with this method i can see what colors i have and can spread them out across the piece. I got something like this :
oh, the full layout of this bag should look like this :
I was making the piece up as i go 🙂
after i got the color layout that i like, i start joining the pieces. my first attempt was single crochet the pieces together but i didn’t like the color ( see photo )
so i re-do it by placing the crochet pieces with the right sides facing each other and single crochet them together.
and here’s the youtube diy :
Hope you enjoy this diy and have a beautiful, colourful, sunburst day !
