Sunny Flash Bag

Everyone loves a little sunshine right?

For me, a beautiful sunny day is so relaxing, especially when it’s a bank holiday, giving more time to do the things that we really enjoy. Of course this also means a little extra crochet time.

This week, I had started to crochet granny squares with various colours of Bonus DK yarn to make a large mixed colour blanket, but, I got side tracked as you do…

I was going to make more mug coasters but when I finished round 2 of the BellaCoco coaster pattern using the shade ‘Sunflower’ I decided to go ‘off piste’. Instead of including round 3 and the border, I crocheted points all the way around the circle in shade ‘Bright Orange’ (1dbl,1htr, 1tr, 1dbltr, 1tr, 1htr, 1dbl, Ch1) between the two treble crochet parts to create a sun shape.

I made two sun motifs, and then got back to the granny squares again. Whilst doing that, I thought it might be nice to put together some of the squares and make use of the sun motifs.

I joined everything together with double crochet and made a simple chain stitch handle. This project finally turned out to be a childs mini tote bag.

I gave it to my 21 month old niece as a gift when she came on a family visit to stay with us. I think she liked it! (blurry toddler action shot!).

This weekend in Norfolk we also visited National Trust, Felbrigg Hall and spent a lot of time out in the garden dipping our toes in the paddling pool, perfect πŸ™‚
