How to make a bag for a little girl

post signatureThis is the granny square bag I made for the birthday of a little girl ,classmate of my daughter. If you want to make one just follow the simple instructions.

 First you make a couple of granny squares depending on the size you want the bag to be. I used 8 big ones.
 Join them together with a needle or hook . I used a needle.
 Fold in almost 1/3 of the length to get the aquired shape of a little basic bag and start stiching to secure in place.
Choose a couple of lovely buttons. I used the buttons of an old cardigan.
 Pick 3 more granny squares....
Fold in half and stich

Then place next to each other and stich to form a basic handle

 Ta - da a couples of hours later the little bag is ready to be gifted.
P.S I didn't have much time to line it but you can do it and to be honest it's the right thing to do.


  1. I really must get my crochet hook out one of these days, and break into my stash of yarn, because seeing how productive you are is making me feel like I should be doing the same. :) Very cute!

  2. So adorable! And it looks simple - thanks for the ideas, Angie : >

  3. What a sweet gift! You are doing really well with the crochet, i am very impressed.

  4. Very pretty! I took up crochet fairly recently because I was looking for a simple necklace, also for a birthday gift for a little girl. Now I'm obsessed with crocheted accessories!

  5. That's sweet! I think I'd make a cloth bag to line it with so her treasured items didn't slip through.
