Crocheted bags for Christmas

Along with scarves for Christmas pressies, I decided to have a go at making some bags for my daughters.  I could only really do double and treble crochet then.

I made them up using double crochet;  making a large rectangle which I then folded in half and then stitched the two sides together and attached the strap.  I then made up a lining in their favourite colour and included a pocket for their mobile phone which closed with a velcro tab and handstitched it to the inside.  Then I found buttons which matched the lining and made a 'catch'.

They weren't perfect but the girls loved that they were handmade by their mum.
