Dragonfly Garden Bag
My Dragonfly Garden Bag uses my new window flower stitch that I recently published. I had the idea just to make a simple HDC remote bag but as usual I got carried away and created my window flower stitch but I still wanted to make a remote bag so I got started right away keeping in mind to try to keep it as simple as possible.
I tried to keep things simple but what is easy for me is not always easy for everyone else. If you need help with the window flower stitch, there is a video tutorial on YouTube HERE. other than that, this pattern uses basic simple stitches, mostly HDC and there are two TR stitches, which is a triple crochet.
I wrote this pattern with instructions to make it the same as my remote bag OR as a purse with an over the shoulder strap. I haven't made the purse so I don't have a picture but I would love to see if you make one, please 'Hook Up' your project on Ravelry or share with me on one of your favourite social media sites, you can find me as Dearest Debi. Check out my remote bag pictures below.
Hey I wonder who really reads my blog? I'm willing to give away a 5 pack of free patterns of choice from my Pattern Shop to the first person that 'hook's up' pictures of a purse with liner, if you add a zipper make it 6 free patterns! This offer stands as long as it takes someone to complete the task, I'd love to feature YOUR bag on this post!
