Get Your Granny On~ bag












I used a J hook for these



I really wanted to do some granny squares, but really didn't feel like making a blanket, so I made a couple of bags, I like the larger one to use for beach stuff etc....These could be very easily lined with fabric to make a nice bag to hole some of the smaller stuff too.

These are just a few basic granny squares turned on their sides. For the blue and brown bag I used three squares done in 8 rounds. Bottom square foled in half, I pieced together by folding two more in half and attaching two sides making them look like triangles... It's easy to see in the pictures if you need help leave me a comment. I didn't make the strap very long as there is a big gap in this one.
I made straps by making a long chain for what I wanted for length, hdc around both sides and then sc around for the second rnd.

For the Green and yellow bag I used four (only 6 rounds on this one) squares and attached as the larger bag and the fourth one I filled in the triangle in the back and used as a flap. I added two more rows to the top side for it to come down over the front of the bag and attached a button to fit through one of the corners. Would love to see any pictures if you make one or two or more! :o) Happy hooking.

  5. Here is a site for the basic granny square.

    After I was finished with them I pieced them together and sewed up the sides, matching corners at the opening of the bag and and on the sides I matched a corner to the folded part of the bottom square. Hope this helps a little.

  8. I really like this - simple for me to make, and cute to boot - it's a win win! lol
    How did you attach the strap - with buttons? Or crocheted into the bag? (The blue & brown - helps if you know which one I am talking about, huh?)

  24. This is my second only project - thanks for the idea! http://fc04.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2012/001/a/6/a661464a99bab0a78a6e04028003c805-d4kzwtn.jpg

  25. I'm new to crocheting. I just made one of these bags. It's my favorite project that I've completed so far. Thanks for the great idea. I used a slip stitch to connect my squares which gives the seams a pronounced appearance. I noticed your bags have flat seams. What stitch did you use to seam your squares together?

  26. This pattern is beautiful. I was curious...if it's alright with you. I plan on making a few and selling them in my shop. The straps and a few details will change but I still wanted to ask if it's alright to sell them. I would give you complete cred for the pattern and link it to the original link I found on ravelry. Thanks in advance. =)

  29. OMGawsh... how BEAUTIFUL are these?!!! LOVE both of them in these exact colors :) We're heading to the beach for a week vacation in August and I'd love to make my daughters and I some of these. I wonder though if we could line them or maybe put plastic sacks in them for collecting shells :) But umm.... I have to find a pattern for the Granny Squares now. Thank goodness for Google :) Do you happen to have one on here??
