I had the privilege of having this
Sweet 15 year old as a house guest.
She already knows how to crochet,
but wanted some help making
a gift for a friend.
Her friend loves music,
so we decided to make a bag
that resembled a music staff
with note appliques.
We took a break from crocheting
to take the pooches for a walk.
She loves dogs, and the pooches love her.
This is how the bag turned out.
Pattern For What We Did
measures about 12 x 12 inches
I Love This yarn Sparkle in Black and White,
and flat black for the notes.
It was really simple to make.
R: 1 - With White Sparkle yarn, ch 29, 1 sc in the 2ns ch from the hook and in each ch across, turn working down the back side of the ch, 1 sc in each ch, join to 1 sc. We will be stitching in rounds. (56 sc)
R : 2- 5 - With White Sparkle yarn, 1 sc in each sc around.
R : 6-7 - With Black yarn , 1 sc in each sc around
Continue to Repeat R: 2-7-The pattern of of 4 white rows and 2 black rows until you have 5 black stripes and 6 black stripes.
After the last white stripe row of sc, We will be forming the handle, With black yarn, 1 sc in the next 9 sc, ch 25, skip the next 10 sc, join to the next sc with a sc, 1 sc in the next 17 sc, ch 25, skip the next 10 sc, join to the next sc with a sc, 1 sc in the last 8, join to the 1st sc, ch 1
Then *1 sc in each sc and in each ch around, join, ch1*, and Repeat from * to *. tie off and weave in your ends.
Music Note Appliques: This is what I used for the musical notes.
She also, brought me this Wonderful Magnet.
