Wow, Can I start out by saying thank you for all the view last month!!! We had over 90 views in one day!!!

Alright lets get to my latest project! This is a very versatile project for any experience level crocheter. It can be done in just about any stitch including but not limited to , sc, hdc, dc, star stitch, basket weave, broom stick lace, shell, puff, zig zag, use your mind and bring out your own user CHIQ!
This is made using a size N hook and Loops and Thread's Charmisa yarn in  Black Raspberry. It's lined with black felt. ( lining is optional)

So what is the pattern?? It's sooooo easy are you ready??

Chain to the width you want, I will write the instructions for what I did.

Ch 18
Row 1Dc in third ch from the hook, Dc in each chain until the end.
Row 2- 17 chain 3 turn and DC in each chain until the end of each row.
Row 18 ch1, sc ch1 sc in first space, sc, ch1, sc in each space until the end. weave in ends
Line with felt, or any fabric.
Fold and sew the sides with a yarn needle
The top flap should not be long enough to touch the bottom, look at the above picture for reference. After sewing turn inside out so the seams are on the inside of the bag.
Your done, unless you would like to add a button of flower!
Send you finished projects to and they will be added to the blog with your name or nickname!
Until next time keep hooking!

I used Aunt Lydia's Crochet thread and a size D hook. Make a magic circle Round 1 Ch3, 2dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2 and join. Sides and top of cross Ch3 2dc, ch2, dc3 in any ch2 sp. Turn and *sl to ch2, ch3,2dc, ch2,3dc. *Turn and repeat * repeat everything in this step 3 more times. Cut thread and weave in ends at the ends of the sides. Bottom of the cross When you get to the last side repeat the * section 2 more times for a total of 4 shells for the bottom and 2 shells for the sides not including the center. On the top of the cross attach yarn and chain 26, skip the first 5 and sl to the first chain. Then I added a tassel.
