The Granny Shoulder Bag Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

 The Granny Shoulder Bag
 Crochet Pattern
By Sara Sach of   Posh Pooch Designs



The Granny Shoulder Bag is a new crochet pattern
 release that I have been working on for sometime.
I wanted the bag to be fun, and useful.
as well as, a bag design that would use up left 
over yarns from my Yarn Stash. It is designed using an 
assortment of Medium (4) Acrylic yarns from 
all my left over projects. Different colors, shades
 and brands. It turned out exactly how I wanted it.

It is a big roomy bag and holds a lot of things, 
and it is super pretty.
It is also a really easy Crochet pattern to stitch up.
It consists of 3 Granny Squares, stitched together 
to form a bag or purse. And the rest of the fun
is in the cute details.


You will notice there are 2 crochet hooks listed
 in the materials list.
Crochet Hooks – I / 5.500 MM - For Bag
                                        K/ 6.50 MM - For Bag Strap
We will be holding 3 strands of yarn together to 
form the bag strap so we need a larger crochet hook.

How I Recycle A Sweater | Posh Pooch Designs

How I Recycle A Sweater 
By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs



On Today's Friday Fun With Sara Video
I show you how I take a sweater I no longer
 wear and make it into a fun set to keep you warm.
We made some Arm Warmers, 
a Cowl and a Headband. 
And trimmed them all with crochet.
This Was So Much fun!

Turn a Unused Sweater into...

A Cowl, Arm Warmers and a Headband

This is a fun way to reuse an old, or maybe a ruined sweater, 
and make it useable and new again.
Any size sweater will work, and of course
 any color or texture. I do not recommend a crochet sweater,
 a store bought knit sweater seems to work the best.

See The Video On My Crochet Youtube 
Channel At This LINK


What You Need:
A Sweater With Long Sleeves
Scissors
Straight Pins
Crochet Hook - H / 5.0 MM
Yarn - Med (4) Acrylic 
Yarn needle
Tape measure

Stitches:
Quilting Blanket Stitch (blst)
Chain (ch)
Single Crochet (sc)
Skip (sk)


Here is a chart to show you how to cut your sweater
The measurements are for an average size sweater.


you can adjust your measurements to fit you,
 or the person you are making this for.


For the Arm Warmers 
Cut were indicated  On the Picture above

Roll the cut edge and pin the edge under.
Stitch a row of blst around and
 join to the 1st st. No set amount of sts.



We will be placing our crochet stitches in the 
blanket stitches.
*2 sc in next bkst loop, 1 sc in the next*
Repeat from * to * around, join, ch 1


*sc in the 1st sc, ch3, sk the next sc*
Repeat around, join, tie off and weave in your ends.
For Cowl:
Cut were indicated  On the Picture above
The process is the same as the edge of the Arm Warmers.
I ch 60 to make a tie to cinch it up


For The Headband:
Cut at The Seams, This will give you 2 headbands

Put to 2 edges together,  roll the edges in
 and pin in place. 


We will be placing our crochet stitches in the 
blanket stitches.
 put the 2 ends together and whip stitch closed to form the headband.
I didn't at the sc or trim to the headband. You can if you like. 


Now You have a beautiful new set to keep you warm.


This same process Can be used on sweatshirts as well.
