Developing Chains

My crochet journey.

#CelebrateMomCAL My Favorite Tote Bag — April 11, 2018
JoAnn Bucket Bag — April 4, 2018

JoAnn Bucket Bag

I found a pattern from JoAnn for a bucket bag. I wasn’t sure about the materials, so I opted for cotton. I used hot purple, hot pink, and hot blue. I also added a snap to help hold the bag together for security reasons. I think it turned out cute.

Small Clutch — February 23, 2018

Small Clutch

I’ve been looking around for patterns that aren’t blankets lately. I found some small clutch images, but finding a pattern seemed to be more difficult. I then rad across Dot’s Little Ditty Bag. It was so cute and looked like it wouldn’t take that long to work up. I used part of a skein I had left over. It took about 2 hours to complete the clutch. It is so cute. I used the H hook as indicated. A stitch marker really is needed to keep track of the rounds. I actually had an extra stitch, but you’d never know it if I hadn’t said anything.

Market Bag — February 21, 2018

Market Bag

I attempted my first crochet market bag. It really wasn’t as hard as I seemed to think it was going to be. I used a pattern from yarnspirations. There is also a YouTube video from the Crochet Crowd that helped with a visual.

I know there are some issues with my bag, but I’m so pleased with how it looks.
