My Little Bag Redux

15 Aug

Small bag with handleI decided to add a built in handle to my little bag. I’m rather pleased with it! After adding the extra rounds the bag is about 6.75 inches tall, 8 inches wide and 2 inches deep. I made the handle the width of two squares, so I’m thinking I could insert extra squares on either side of the handle for a different look.

While thinking about handles, I also thought it could be made with a detachable handle. Just crochet a handle with a clip on each end and crochet little loops onto the sides of the bag to attach them to.

As was suggested by a commenter on yesterday’s post, this bag could easily be lined since it’s rectangular in shape. Not much complicated cutting and shaping to be done. I tend not to line bags because I don’t like to sew! Plus I never have fabric around–but I always have yarn!

I filled this bag with a couple pounds of candy and the handle seems to cope with that all right and the bag doesn’t lose it’s shape much.

      Ha! Maybe that’ll be my project tomorrow, working on the pattern. Which means I have to make another one. Too bad. 😀
