Bag of Colors

I crocheted my first bag ever... pretty cool huh?  

 I had all these yarn left-overs begging to be used and this was the perfect project for it!  At first glance I didn't think these colors would work together, but I was pleasantly surprised :)

So where did I get the pattern?  I used the free Sunny Shell Purse on Ravelry.

This pattern was a little harder to use than I expected.  My first attempt didn't turn out so well.  The pattern calls for only 4 double crochet stitches for each shell and mine ended up a bit misshapen that way.  It works so much better to use 5 double crochet stitches for each shell.

  1. That's a pretty good attempt for a first bag ever and it's nice to adapt the pattern to suit yourself and it looks good to me even though I've not seen the original. x

  8. Ah!!! I am so jealous!!! I tried crocheting a year or two ago and it did not go well. I was so motivated and excited to learn that I was very disappointing when I couldn't get it down right. Even tried loom knitting. You're bag turned out so cute. I love all the pretty colors you used. Congrats! I love it!!

    I’d love it if you would share this at my “That’s My Style” Link party this Friday!
