Bella Ruffled Bag (Free Crochet Pattern)




This bag was made by Grace Anne of  WouldYouLikeYarnWithThat.blogspot.com, lovely isn't it?
I love how she added her own touch with a flower.



Whippig up this crochet pattern was so much fun because I have always had a  fetish for bags. I am not in to any other accessories but choosing a bag has always been a herculean task for me. When I started crocheting seriously, bags were my first love. I have no idea how I shifted gears to baby booties.  I have always loved bags with ruffles but never owned one and this could be my first. I have left the bag unlined but you can line it if you wish to make it last longer.

This bag is the size of an oversized clutch and just big enough to hold your essentials. The bag is 13 inches wide at the base and 9 1/2 inches tall including the handle. The bag is worked using worsted weight ( size 4 medium yarn) and an H(5mm) and G (4.25 mm)  crochet hook. You need to know only the basic crochet stitches and hdc2tog decrease to make this bag. The pattern explains how to work a hdc2tog. The bag is quick to work up as the ruffles use double crochet stitches that makes your work grow quickly.  

A lot of you made great suggestions about which colors you would choose for the bag. Some even said they would make each ruffle in a different color. If you make this bag please do share a picture on my facebook page. If I love the picture I might even add it to my blog post with your permission of course. I wish one of you would make it in Fuchsia!

  43. How cute! Is the flower instructions included? I think the flower really makes that second bag. (If not I suppose I could look one up on my own) Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  44. May be a silly question, but I just can't figure out what you mean by " ch 2, make 1 hdc in same st as ch 2" at the start of each round. Any help would be appreciated

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If you don't want to count the beginning chain 2 as a stitch you work a hdc in to the same st as beginning ch 2. Also this way it will leave no gap between your stitches.

  45. hi
    This bag is a lovely crochet pattern
    I chose to skip the last row in all the ruffles.
    I attached the flower with a pin.
    If you give permission, i can refer the link to your blog's url in my blog and upload my bag's picture in my blog.

    2. I am unable to get the pattern for this bella ruffle bag If anyone has it please let me know Terri

  55. I am confused. Page 6, round 5, says to 1 hdc until 3 sts left, then hdc dec twice, end in marked st. How do you hdc dec twice in only 3 sts? Don't you need 4 sts to work into? Help!!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 1 hdc till 3 stitches left before the marked stitch. So including the marked stitch you will have 4 stitches.

  56. Thank you for the pattern! When I saw it I knew I had to make me this purse. Perfect timing too because my old purse was ready to be retired. LOL. I did make a few modifications though. I posted the link for the pattern to your site and my modifications on my blog.

  63. Thank you for creating this pattern and making it free! I made one for my friend and added a 4th row of ruffles! It is a very good pattern, pretty easy to follow. I am making a second one now and decided to crochet the whole base first the add the ruffles because I only have 1 large skein of the yarn I needed so makes it easier than having a couple skeins at a time.
