My last project of 2014
Posted January 3, 2015on:
This post is about the last crochet project I made last year, a Monster High inspired bag for my friend’s daughter who is crazy about the dolls, and anything related to them. I wanted to make her a Monster High Ipad cover for Christmas, but my friend told me that what she really needed was a bag to put all of her accessories. So I used the Lacy V Market bag pattern to make it, but with 40 in ch instead of 50 because I wanted it smaller.
My first step was to choose some material for the lining, so I went to Jo-Ann and found this really cool Monster High fabric which helped me decide on the colors of the bag.
I made a slight alteration to the pattern, on top. I wanted to add a black ribbon so instead of finishing with just single crochet, I made a row of double crochet, skipping two stitches in between to make a hole. I really want to put an applique on the bag but it was too late to purchase one, Christmas was only a few days away. I had to think outside the box, so I cut a piece from the fabric and used that instead.
I think the bag turned out really cute, I love this pattern, and I think I will be using it in future projects. Lilly loved it, now she can put all her Monster High accessories in it and recycle that grocery bag where it belongs!
