Bella Ruffled Bag
Whipping up this crochet pattern was so much fun because I have always had a fetish for bags. I am not into any other accessories but choosing a bag has always been a herculean task for me. When I started crocheting seriously, bags were my first love. I have no idea how I shifted gears to baby booties. I have always loved bags with ruffles but never owned one and this could be my first. I have left the bag unlined but you can line it if you wish to make it last longer.
The bag is worked using worsted weight ( size 4 medium yarn) and an H(5mm) and G (4.25 mm) crochet hook. You need to know only the basic crochet stitches and hdc2tog decrease to make this bag. The pattern explains how to work a hdc2tog. The bag is quick to work up as the ruffles use double crochet stitches that makes your work grow quickly.
This bag is the size of an oversized clutch and just big enough to hold your essentials. The bag is 13 inches wide at the base and 9 1/2 inches tall including the handle.
