Materials Used:-

You can use any yarn of your choice.But If you use eyelash yarn, it would also give a decorative charm to your bag.



Start with a Magic Circle.

6 Single Crochet into the loop.

Pull the yarn end and close the loop. Make sure to pull it tight so that there is no gap left in the middle.



We will be working in continuous rounds. Do not slip stitch , instead continue working in rounds.
2 Single Crochets in each stitch around.(12 stitches at end)

Single crochet,1 Single Crochet in the next stitch
Repeat( 2Sc, 1Sc) all around.(18 Stitches at end)



Single crochet,1 Single Crochet in the next 2 stitches
Repeat( 2Sc, 1Sc, 1Sc) all around.(24 Stitches at end)



Single crochet,1 Single Crochet in the next 3 stitches
Repeat( 2Sc, 1Sc, 1Sc, 1Sc) all around.(30 Stitches at end) 



Single crochet,1 Single Crochet in the next 4 stitches
Repeat( 2Sc, 1Sc, 1Sc, 1Sc,1 Sc) all around.(36 Stitches at end) 


This will be the base of your bag.

My base measures around 7 centimeters.

If you wish to make a bigger size ,then you will just have to continue increasing the stitches till you reach the size you wish to make.

The pattern for increasing will be :-
Single crochet,1 Single Crochet in the next 5 stitches
Single crochet,1 Single Crochet in the next 6 stitches
Single crochet,1 Single Crochet in the next 7 stitches...............and so on!!!!




Now for making the body of the bag, make Double Crochets on each stitch all around.

Slip Stitch to join.


Continue with Double Crochets till you reach the size you wish to make.


  






To make the loops for the string ,Start with a Double Crochet , Chain 2 Skip a Stitch and Double Crochet next stitch.

Repeat (Double Crochet, Chain 2,Skip a stitch) all around.
Slip Stitch to join.

To finish off...make 2 double crochets in the each of the chain 2 space from the previous round.


Overall my bag measures up to 14 centimeters. 




To make the string, make chain stitches.

 I made around 70 chains.



Make two little heart appliques and attach them to the string on both the ends.

But do make sure to first weave the string through the gaps made and then attach the hearts with a yarn needle.


I had recently shared a pattern for Small Crochet heart applique.
