Bag of Colors

I crocheted my first bag ever... pretty cool huh?  

 I had all these yarn left-overs begging to be used and this was the perfect project for it!  At first glance I didn't think these colors would work together, but I was pleasantly surprised :)

So where did I get the pattern?  I used the free Sunny Shell Purse on Ravelry.

This pattern was a little harder to use than I expected.  My first attempt didn't turn out so well.  The pattern calls for only 4 double crochet stitches for each shell and mine ended up a bit misshapen that way.  It works so much better to use 5 double crochet stitches for each shell.

  1. That's a pretty good attempt for a first bag ever and it's nice to adapt the pattern to suit yourself and it looks good to me even though I've not seen the original. x
