Joining the squares

  • Using colour (C), ss down one side of both square, cut yarn and weave in ends.
  • Using colour (C) ss down the opposite side of the two squares, leaving the “top”and the “bottom”of the bag open, DO NOT cut the yarn.

Making the “top” of the bag

Round 1

Using the same yarn that you finished stitching the side, turn work so that you are working the “top” of the bag, ch 1, sc into same st, (you will just have worked into the seam/join of the two squares), sc into ch sp, sc into next 33 sts, sc into ch, sc into “seam/join”, sc into ch sp, sc into next 33 sts, sc into ch sp, ss into 1st sc. (72 sc)

Round 2

Ch 1, sc into same st, sc into next 71 sts, cut yarn and weave in ends. (72 sc)

Attaching the strap

Helpful hint: pick up your stitches into the “top” of the bag, working your stitches evenly over the “seam/join” (refer to photo).  We will be picking up 5 stitches so make sure your 3rd st is directly in the center above the seam.

Row 1

Using colour (C), join yarn with a ss, sc into same st, sc into next 4 sts, ch 1, turn (5 sc)

Row 2

Sc into 1st st, sc into next 4 sts, ch 1 turn work (5 sc)

Row 3 – 122

Repeat row 2

Helpful hint: you can shorten or lengthen the strap, making it as long as you would like it to be.  My strap measured approximately 65 cm and as I made it for my little girl, was long enough for her to wear over her shoulder.

Edging the strap

Using colour E, sc around the entire strap and top of the bag on both sides, remember to make a sc2tog into each of the “corners” so that the strap lies flat.

Making the “bottom” of the bag

Round 1

Using colour (D) turn work so that you are working the “bottom” of the bag, join yarn with a ss into st directly above the “join/seam”, ch 1, sc into same st, sc into ch sp, sc into next 33 sts, sc into ch, sc into “seam/join”, sc into ch sp, sc into next 33 sts, sc into ch sp, ss into 1st sc. (72 sc)

Round 2

Ch 1, sc into same st, sc into next 71 sts, ss into 1st sc. (72 sc)

Round 3 

Repeat round 2. (72 sc)

Round 4

Repeat round 2. (72 sc)

Round 5

Ch 1, sc into same sp, *ch 1, sk next st, sc into next st*, rep *.* 18 more times, cut a long tail, ss both sides of the squares together and weave in ends. (19 ch 1 sp, 21 sc)

Making the tassels

I used all 5 colours and mixed up my tassels, so use your imagination and get creative with the tassels.

Each tassel is made from 5 strands of yarn, approximately 22 cm long, folded in half, and threaded through each of the 19 ch 1 loops made at the “bottom” of your bag.

Helpful hint: you can make these tassels as long as you like – have FUN with them.
