I used Caron’s Simply Soft Crochet Gift Bags free pattern. This pattern has three different bags – a small, medium and large that can go together as a set but are done in slightly different stitch patterns. I did the small one with no modifications except that my drawstring is a crocheted hdc chain instead of a ribbon. I started the large one but ended up doing a modification that turned into the green and white one. It uses the same stitch pattern and ruffle but is a smaller size and I haven’t yet added a drawstring of any kind. I actually may not for that one. I used some random yarn that I had gotten for free in a Listia yarn lot although I can totally see Caron’s Simply Soft being great for these.
I enjoyed these two bag patterns. I especially like the stitch on the small bag. The stitch patterns are very repetitive, very meditative, which can definitely be great for a project sometimes and was certainly what I needed this week!
