Step-by-Step Tutorial:

  1. Foundation: To begin, create a foundation chain using your desired hook size. The number of chains will vary based on the size of the bag you wish to make. Refer to the pattern for the exact stitch counts and measurements for each bag size.
  2. Body of the Bag: Next, work single crochet and double crochet stitches as specified in the pattern to create the body of the bag. The pattern provides clear instructions on where to use back loop only or front loop only stitches for added texture and visual appeal.
  3. Customizing Size: The beauty of the Treasure Bag pattern lies in its flexibility. The pattern includes directions on customizing the size of your bag, allowing you to adjust it according to your preferences. Feel free to experiment with different yarn weights and hook sizes to achieve your desired dimensions.
  4. Edging: To give your bag a polished finish, crochet a dense edging that will pull the bag together at the top. The pattern provides guidance on how to achieve this effect.
  5. Shoulder Strap: The shoulder strap adds functionality to your Treasure Bag. Follow the instructions provided in the pattern to create a sturdy and non-stretchy strap. Depending on your preference, you can make the strap long enough for shoulder carrying, across-the-chest wearing, or simply for carrying the bag in your hands.
  6. Finishing Touches: Once you’ve completed the bag and the shoulder strap, take a moment to admire your creation! Weave in any loose ends and make sure all stitches are secure. Your Treasure Bag is now ready to accompany you on your adventures!
