I love crochet because it calms me down and it gives me so many possibilities to express my creativity. With few simple techniques you'll never be bored again!
How did I come up with idea to crochet a bag? Well, I was looking for a gift for my niece and I had no idea what to get her. (You probably know teenagers are the hardest to please.) All I knew was that I wanted something special and unique but not too expensive.
At first I only wanted to make very simple purple bag with little purple hearts. I already made one (you can see it bellow) and then I changed my mind and made another one in pink with light pink hearts.
Little hearts are really easy to make and they look quite nice, don't you think? Actually all patterns (bag and heart ) on this page are simple and easy to make, kids can do it, beginners can do it, and if you used to crochet and leave it for few years, you'll easily start again with these simple instructions.
I used very simple stitches and you can find instructions for bag and for hearts below.
You can learn how to crochet hearts from the video below, but for all of you who prefer written instruction there is a link to step by step instructions with a lot of photos.
And I hope you'll have a lot of fun creating your new bag with hearts. You don't need much to make a crocheted little bag, just a crochet hook and two different shades of pink yarn.
