New Pattern, Flower Fairy Tote Bag

New Pattern, Flower Fairy Tote Bag

I have listed a new pattern in my Etsy shop tonight.  

The Flower Fairy Tote is made all in one piece, so like my other tote pattern, it would be an ideal beginner project.

Like my previous tote pattern I have used more than one strand throughout.  This tote is made with microfiber acrylic 4 ply yarn made by The Womens Institute, which is sold exclusively by Hobbycraft here in the UK.  Colours chosen are lime green, yellow, orange and coral.  The button is a Dress It Up, Elite Collection Flower Fairies button.

Stitches that you will use include chain, slip stitch, single crochet, half double crochet and double crochet.  I am quoting American stitching terms.

The finished bag measures 20 cm square and weights just under 84g including the button.

The pattern does not include lining instructions but the choice is yours.

This bright new tote bag is made all in one piece, which itself makes it an ideal beginners project.

For the basic bag pattern I have used three strands of Hayfield Bonus DK Extra Value, shade 0957.  This is a tumble dry and 100% acrylic yarn that should stand up to a few washes at least.  You could of course use one strand of chunky wool if you chose.  You will need about 140 meters of yarn for each strand.

Stitches you will use include chain, slip stitch, single crochet, half double crochet, and picot.

The finished bag measures 26cm square and weighs just under 130g.  If you choose you could adjust the pattern to make a smaller or larger bag too.

Of course decorate it with your own choice of applique or use the flower pattern provided with a 2.5 to 3 mm button as I have.

Why not give it a complementary lining to keep all your smalls together too.  The choices are endless.

The pattern is expected to be in my Etsy online shop within days.
