Holt Bag

A Free Crochet Pattern



My great grandma Holt loved a good accessory. She had an extensive collection of rings, handbags and scarves. Oh the joys of being a little girl and getting permission to go in her closet to look at it all. When I was asking my sister what I should name this bag she suggested I name it after Grandma Holt. I'm pretty sure she would have loved this bag and the fact that I even make things for a profit. She herself was a very independent woman, and I am always thankful of the example she made.

This is a fun belt bag, that has a great art-deco look to it. My favorite kinds of bags are bags that are hands free. It is a quick project. I'm able to complete it in under 4 hours, and that is including putting in a liner.

Girl Power Backpack

A Free Crochet Pattern

 

This Backpack is all about what little girls love. It's pink with lots of flowers and it can hold all the things they collect. Do your girls collect ALL THE THINGS like my girls do? Oh my some times I would rather avoid their room.

It has finally warmed up here in Toronto. We have moved into a neighborhood that has a lot of parks. There are four that we can go to that are in walking distance. We have been using this bag a lot. All of my daughter's park toys go in the bag and it sits by our front door ready to go. I have also been using my copy cat striped bag to hold my crocheting when we go to the park.


Girl Power Back Pack

Yarn: Lily: Sugar and cream: Worsted 4 ply cotton, 120 yrds./ 2.5 oz color: 1 skein: Soft Ecru, 1 skein: Hot Pink

Hook: I

Notions: safety pin, blunt needle

Size: Each motif is 5 inches. Bag is roughly 13 by 11.

Where Can I Get The Pattern

This is a free pattern. Keep scrolling down to see this free crochet pattern. If you would like to add the free downloadable pattern to your library through Ravelry You can here:download now



Pentagon Motif: (make 5 pink and make 5 ecru)

Round 1: Make an adjustable loop, ch 1,{sc in loop, ch 9, sc in loop} repeat 3 times for a total of 4 loops, ch 5, tr in starting sc pull adjustable loop tight. (5 loops total)

Round 2: ch 1, sc in ch loop just made, ch 6,{sc in next loop, ch 6} repeat around sl st into first sc. (5 sc, and 5 ch 6 spaces)

Round 3: Ch 1 slip st into sp, ch 1, {(3 sc, ch 3, 3 sc) in the 6 ch  space} repeat around, sl st into first sc.

Round 4: Ch 3 (counts as dc), dc in next 2 sc,{(2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in next ch sp, dc in the next 6 sc,} repeat 3 more times, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc), in next ch sp, dc in the last 3 sc, sl st in first dc. Finish off. Weave in your end.

Putting the motifs together

Making sure as you go that all the motifs are facing the same way (or in other words that the point is facing the same way on all of them.)

Take 2 motifs and put them together backs facing each other and points going the same direction, and sc one side together. Finish off. Repeat this till you have a line of all 5 of the same color pentagons together. Then take the first and last and put them together with a row os sc. to complete the circle of pentagons. Repeat this with the next color.

Now to put the 2 colors together you will match up a point with a dip, and so forth. With the back sides facing each dc will line up with a sc, and each point space matches up with two dip spaces. (I’m sorry that sounds really confusing) SO, Start with sc in the next 10 dc, one sc for the sp or sps, sc in the next 10 dc. Repeat around, sl st in first sc. Finish off. Weave in you ends.

Bottom of the bag (in white)

Round 1: Make an adjustable loop, ch 3 (counts as first dc here and throughout) make 11 dc in the loop, pull loop tight and sl st into first dc (12 dc)

Round 2: Ch 3, dc in same st, 2 dc in each st around, sl st in first dc (24 dc)

Round 3: Ch 3, (2 dc in next dc, 1 dc in next dc) repeat around 2 dc in last dc, sl st in first dc. (36)


Round 4: Ch 3, 1 dc in the next  dc, 2 dc in next dc, {dc in the next 2 dc, 2 dc in the next dc} repeat around, sl st into first dc. (48)

Round 5: Ch 3, 1 dc in the next 2 dc, 2 dc in the next dc, {dc in the next 3 dc, 2 dc in the next dc} repeat around, sl st into first dc. (60)

Round 6: Ch 3, 1 dc in the next 3 dc, 2 dc in the next dc, {dc in the next 4 dc, 2 dc in the next dc} repeat around, sl st into first dc. Do not finish off (72)

Connecting the motifs to the bottom of the bag


With back sides facing each other, sc both pieces together. Dc’s should match up with each st and sp.

Top of bag (pink)

Round 1: Joining around the back post of a dc in the white motifs,{bpdc in the next 10 dc, bpdc around the joining st of the 2 motifs,} repeat around,  sl st into beginning st.

Round 2- 4: Ch 3, dc in each bpdc around, sl st into beginning st. Finnish off weave in your ends.

Sew round 1 to round 4 making a space for the adjustable straps to go.

Straps

Making a large tail with both colors, form a slip knot and ch 180 ch, or till you have your desired length, finish off leaving a long tail.

With a safety pin work one side of the  straps around the top of the bag 1 and a half times, and make the straps even and then tie the long tails at even spots at the bottom of the back of the bag.

Messenger Envelope Tablet Case


 A Free Crochet Pattern

I am always in a conundrum when it comes to making gifts for the guys in my life. I'm usually so lost in finding things manly enough for them. One year I made golf club covers and those ended up being a pretty big hit. This year I went with blankets for most of the guys. I made an apron for my dad to use while he was painting or woodworking. That left me with my husband.

He had been nagging me to make a pattern that had to do with carrying a tablet. So I went to town and came up with the tablet case
