Crochet Chronicles:

I am the Admin of a lovely bunch of crocheters…..Our crochet sisterhood is called Passionate Abt Crochet(PAC)…and it is a warm, friendly and zany place to be in. PAC, celebrates it’s first year of existence on the 22nd of June’14….and to celebrate that wonderful event…we decided on a series of CALs(Crochet Alongs). One of the CALs was to crochet a bag using satin ribbon….I saw this bag pattern in one of Moogly’s  posts and thought it unique enough to be PAC’s  first anniversary mascot…….:-)).

I hooked up  2 bags for the CAL….this red one and a navy blue one, which will be my next post. The difference in these two bags is that the red one is hooked in a broader ribbon(2.5cm) than the navy blue(1/8 of an inch) one. I found the navy blue ribbon very easy to hook but it  needed a canvas lining  becos the i/8 ribbon is extremely soft and needs help in holding shape………but the red one after being made, looks better and doesn’t need a canvas lining to make it sturdy.

So all in all, If I were to hook another satin ribbon bag I’d go for the broader variety.

Though the pattern requires a different sort of ribbon, I used what was available to me in the local market. I also bought a couple of rolls of flower patterned and polka dotted ribbons to change the monotony of hooking up a bag in a single colour.

Materials Needed:

Red Satin Ribbon: 116 metres or 126 yards in length and 2.5 cm and in width

Red flower Ribbon: 15 metres or 16.5 yards(approx) in length and 1.8 cms in width

Red Polka dot Ribbon:12 metres or 13.2 yards(approx) in length and 1.8 cmd in  width

Hook size 8mm

Total Ribbon Requirement : 143 metres or 156 yards

Checkered Red & White Ribbon: 3 metres for the handles or  3.3 yards in  length and 1.2 cmd in width

Red Rose Metallic thread

Hook size 1.25mm 

Pattern:

This Simple and yet Lovely pattern, is from the Italian Mother and Daughter Duo……….Chiara and Tizy

How to sew in a lining for your Bag:

I used this tutorial for the lining of my bag. I found itvery useful and many Thanks to the wonderful people who made and shared them. I also fixed in a zipper pocket and a simple pocket. I am not much of a sewing person……so this was an ‘up’ on my learning curve…I have posted a few photos here, but they are in no way a tutorial….These are the links that I have used to line my bag.

Dressing Up your Bag:

My idea of embellishment is minimalistic….but I also bow down to the tastes of the vast majority who like bows and flowers on their bags………I wouldn’t be honest if I didn’t say, that these little things do make a difference. So I made a little rose and threaded in a few crystal beads as a zipper chain to adorn my little red wonder…:-D!!!
