Top This Lil Beach Bag Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

Top This Lil Beach Bag 
Crochet Pattern By Sara Sach of
This Bag is super easy to stitch up because it is all stitched in Double Crochet Stitches.
It is designed using one of the fun yarn kits that has
 a stuffed animal on the top.
You can use a "Top This" or "Lil Topper" or any 
of the similar style yarn kits.
I have found them at Michael's, Hobby Lobby and Joann Fabrics. 
Or just use any worsted weight yarn(4) or cotton yarn
 you have on hand.

The bag is the perfect 
size for a young girl
 or boy to
 take to the beach.
or use to stash 
their treasures in,
measuring about 
9 inches tall.

This Bag I worked up in 
Cotton yarn I had 
on hand, 
to test the pattern.

It's now my Little
project bag.
And it fits great right 
in my purse.

Weave the chain through R : 11 about every 6th dc.
Tie  the ends together.

Adding The Topper:
Attach the topper securely to the front of the bag, using the ribbons and
provided in the kit. 
You can also sew it in place with matching yarn and needle, if you wish.

I am heading out to search for some more styles to make
 for my grandkids.
And I just saw on line some have footballs!
