Granny Stripe Boutique Bag

I am so excited to be sharing my very first written crochet pattern! Tangled Happy's Granny Stripe Boutique Bag. I really love how it turned out! My girls love it too! That must be a good sign? It's the perfect size to hold their Nintendo DS and ipods. Since this is my first written pattern I would love to hear your feedback. So let me know if you run into problems. It makes perfect since to me but that really doesn't mean anything if it isn't clear to you all. So here it goes. 


MATERIALS LIST:
Worsted Weight Yarn
Size U.S. I/9 (5.50mm)
Scissors 
Tapestry Needle


STITCH COMBINATIONS:
Shell is "work 3 dc in same st or sp."
Beginning Shell is "work ch 3, 2 dc in same st or sp."


TIPS:
Join all rounds.
Do not turn after rounds on the bag.


Starting out: Ch 51.


Row 1: Work 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Continue working sc in each ch st to end. Join w/ sl st in 1st sc. (50 sc) You will now be working in rounds.
Rnd 1: Work Beginning Shell in same st as join. {Skip 2 stitches, then work Shell in the next st.} Repeat between {} around. Join in top of ch 3. (17 Shells)
Rnd 2: Sl St in each dc of shell into sp between first two shells. Work Beginning Shell. {Work Shell in space between next shell.} Repeat between {} to end. Join in top of ch 3. (17 Shells)
Rnd 3-8: Repeat round 2.
Rnd 9-10: Ch 1. Sc in next st and in each st to end. Join in top of first sc. (50 sc)

Rnd 13-14: Ch 1. Sc in next st and in each st to end. Join in top of first sc.

  12. Hey Sara!
    Lovely bag. Your blog is beautiful.

    Could you please tell me what would be the finish size of this bag?

    Thanks.
    Mehvish

    ReplyDelete
  13. Hi Mehvish. Thank you for popping by Tangled Happy! The finished bag is 8" wide and 6" high. You can easily make this bag bigger by increasing the initial chain in 3's. Hope that helps!

  14. Dear Sara,

    This bag is just lovely, very cute indeed! I also saw this little bag on your Ravelry Store.
    I would like to send you an special invitation on behalf of HandbagLessons.com. Do you have an email address I can use to send you more information about it? Or if you prefer you can contact me at daniela@handbaglessons.com

    Hope to hearing back from you.

  16. Thanks for the pattern. I gave it a try last night and was able to make the small purse for my daughter in about an hour or two. I ran out of the yarn I was using, so my handles aren't as sturdy, but it's so cute. I plan to blog about it soon!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Thank you for this pattern! I was able to make it in a morning! Too cute! I found your blog via Ravelry, and I love it! :) Would you be okay with me selling a few purses in my Etsy shop?
    Thank you!

  19. Before the Sun Goes Down,
    Feel free to make and sell this purse in your etsy shop. My only request is that you let others know where your found the pattern so if they wanted they could make one too. Also I would love to see your shop. Would you mind sharing the web address. If you would rather your can email me privately tangledhappy@gmail.com. Merry Christmas!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I found this pattern and have made a few bags as gifts for friends. I have had some requests from others and was wondering what your policy is on selling the finished product? I would sell them on etsy and locally here in Sweden, and of course cite you as the pattern source.
    The pattern is just gorgeous and so easy...I can sit and make a bag while watching the kidlets in the park. Thank you so much for sharing.

  35. Sara, Please help! I'm so sorry, I'm relatively new to crochet, struggle at times and have nobody to go to for guidance... Ok, here is my problem...In row 1 when it states "Join w/ sl st in 1st sc" can you clarify this for me please? Am I to join to the opposite end to where my hook is to form a "loop"? Silly to get stumped so early! I LOVE this little bag and MUST make many!!! Thank you so much....Jill

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hi Jill. Sounds like you are on the right track. You are joining to the opposite end to form a "loop". After completing row one the rest of the bag is worked in rounds or maybe what you would call a loop. Hope that helps! :)

  37. Hi,
    I'm a beginner crocheter, and i just started working on this cute pattern. I have a few questions:
    -In Round 1, the pattern says that one should complete 17 shells in that round, but is that including the beginning shell?
    -Also, in Round 2,I don't really know how to do the part where the pattern says to sl st in each dc of shell into sp between first shell. Could you possibly explain more clearly as to what I should do in that part?

    Sorry if m questions seem a bit dumb...

    Thanks so much!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Izzy darling.

    Round one- Yes that includes the starting shell.
    Round two- Slightly confused me to but what you do is slip stitch into the beginning chain three. Then just like you would with any regular SC you slip stitch into the next to stitches (The top of the DC's)

    You can email me anytime for questions
    tattooedrat@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  39. Thanks Tattooed Rat for replying to Izzy's question! That is correct. Round one does include the begging shell. And in round two slip stitch into the beginning ch then slip stitch in the next two stitches. Work the beginning shell in the gap between the next shell and then continue working shells in each space around. I hope that helps! Feel free to email me as well if you have more questions at tangledhappy@gmail.com.

    2. Hi Sara,
      I too am a beginner crocheter (an experienced knitter, but that doesn't help :-) and am also stuck on the second row.
      I understand slip stitching through but when I make the next shell between what I think is the correct space it juts doesn't look like the rows in the photo of the bag.
      I must be using the wrong space/gap or just not giving it enough time to grow. It looks like round shells keep forming on top but not like the pic. I really seem to get stuck on row 3, it looks ok until then.
      I love this bag and my granddaughter asked me to make it for her.
      Thanks,
      Shoshy

      Delete
    3. Hi Sara,
      I figured out all of it and now I am stuck after row 11 is finished. I ended up with more stitches, so after the last sc 4 and join, I have too many stitches, must have happened in the sc rows.

      Delete
    4. Ok, all done and so cute! I did have to block it so it would be perfect, though didn't think I would have to originally.
      There flower came out so beautiful and i will post a photo in Ravelry and send you the link.
      I plan on making the pink one next and the hairbands! Thanks so much for sharing this lovely pattern with every one!

  48. hi i need help on Rnd 2 i dont really get what it means by sl st in each dc into sp between first two shells. can you please explain it more.

  49. After joining round 1 slip stitch in the next two stitches and then work a begging shell in the space between the two shells of the previous round. Here's a good tutorial in how to work a slip stitch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xfPjNCloRys Hope that helps!

    ReplyDelete
  69. A video tutorial is on my list of things to do. In row 2 you should be working in the spaces between the shells. Does that make sense? I would be happy to try and help you along. I promise it's simple once you get going. Happy weekend. :)

  70. Lovely bag! With the granny square stitch pattern, should the bag be lined? Although all the bags could work as cell phone/Ipod cozies.

    ReplyDelete
  71. as the last poster asks...I think they should be lined also. My pen and keys poke out and you can see things through it. Thought about weaving ribbon through holes also. We'll see what I come up with. Any suggestions?

    1. If your sure round 11 is correct you should sc in each sc AND each chain stitch around. It shouldn't overlap? Let me know if that helps...

  78. Sara,

    I love your blog! Thanks so much for posting everything. I have two questions, 1. Are you on pinterest? I looked for a "Follow Me on Pinterest" link but I couldn't find one. You should definitely join! 2. Can you write out the pattern for the flower in this pattern? I'm on the other site but I'm having a tough time following it. I think I need more clear instructions, or maybe some pictures. My purse came out all right, I did the pink one. I'm having such a tough time with the flower though! :(

    Thanks again!!

As for the flower... It's been a while since I 've made one of these. I will have to take a second look and see what I can do to help. Really you can use any flower you like. If you take a browse at all the finished projects for this pattern on ravelry.com I'm sure you will find something inspiring you might like. I'm sure this bag is pretty in pink!

  80. Sara - Thank you so much for this adorable pattern! I made the headband and I'm making a matching purse for a little friend that is about to be a big sister! When you whipstitch the bottom closed, did you do it "right-sides" out or did you turn it inside-out and whipstitch from the inside? Thanks in advance!! --Jessica

  82. Hi Sarah, Love the pattern and it works up so quick. If I might make a suggestion I think you should make the chain at the beginning and join BEFORE you do the first row. It was a bit difficult connecting after the single crochet was already done. i tweaked the second one I did and it was a bit smoother. The pattern is a good one. Being a "seasoned" crocheter I was able to go with the flow but for beginners it might have some tiny stumbling blocks. Good job!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thanks for the great suggestions Elaine! I'm so happy you like the pattern. I alway seem to twist my chain when I join so I really like joining after a row of singles but... I'm sure this would work well for lots of others with more patients then I have. Lol.. Happy to see you at Tangled Happy today. Wishing you a happy week!

  86. An awesome Raveler just explained the 2nd row to me! You don't do the slip stitch on every dc... just the first one to get you to the space. Then continue with the shells in the spaces around. I thought you had to do the sl st in EVERY dc!

  93. I love it! I am quite new in crocheting but I have already made some great proyects as this one. I have made it with 80 ch in the first row and the result was as nice as yours. I suggest you to write again the instructions in row 2 putting the punctuation correctly because it is a little hard to understand. Thanks a lots for sharing your pattern. I am going to decorate it in a pretty way and I will hung the photo on Ravelry.

  95. Hi! I am an avid crocheter and artist who just started my own internet business selling my handmade items and artwork recently. I found your blog from Tampa Bay Crochet's blog who had a link to your pattern. I LOVE your pattern and am looking to try it out. I wanted to know if you give permission for me to sell what I make using your pattern if I credit the pattern back to you? Please let me know. Darling bag! Great variety on the looks! I want to make one for myself and my daughter first though! :) My website is www.luchiamarie.com if you wanna check it out. Thank you! Have a great day! :)

  145. I really like your bag, I a trying to make it, and I don't understand where you come up with the 17 shells, after the first round, if I am doing it right I come up with about 30 or so, what am I doing wrong.

    1. Hi Wendy. Are you skipping 2 stitches between each shell?

    3. With a starting chain of 50 +1 for turning you should be working in every 3rd ch. 50 divided by 3 is 17 so either your starting chain is off or your only skipping one ch instead of 2 chains... Does this make sense?

  160. Hi!!I love this purse it is so cute! But I was wondering if there us a way to make the handle sturdier? Thanks for the pattern

    ReplyDelete
  161. I don't think it needs a sturdier handle, but rather just re-enforcement at the 2 corners where the handle connects to the body of the bag, maybe put in 1-3 extra stiches in each corner. I've made 4 for age 6-to-12 group. One came out smaller, but it still looks good. Missed a row I guess :) Nice easy pattern for something so posh looking depending how you decorate it

    ReplyDelete
  162. I think your right Faith! It does need a sturdier handle, any ideas anyone?

  165. I absolutely love this pattern and just made my first one yesterday. I used Deborah Norville Collection Serenity Chunky Weight yarn, which is so soft and squishy and perfect for this bag! It crocheted up SO quickly and I'm on my 2nd one already. I have question for you... the slip stitches at the top of the first dc of the next round, they leave a ridge that goes diagonal up the bag. What am I doing wrong, and how can I make that disappear? the bag still looks amazing though and I put a big flower by them, so you can't see them much, but I'd like it to really look smooth. Thanks!!!
