Envelope Bag

Lion Brand® Color Waves - Lion® Bouclé

GAUGE:

9.5 stitches + 10 rows = 4 inches [10 cm] in single crochet. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

BAG

Body
With MC, chain 29. Single crochet in 2nd chain from hook and in each chain across – 28 stitches. Chain 1, turn.

Work even in single crochet over these stitches until 14 inches [35.5 cm] from beginning.

Flap Shaping

Decrease Row (Insert hook into next stitch and pull up a loop) twice, yarn over and pull through all loops on hook – single crochet 2 together made, sc to last 2 stitches, single crochet 2 together.

Repeat Decrease Row until 2 stitches remain. Single crochet 2 together. Do not fasten off.

FINISHING

Edging

Make 3 single crochet in last single crochet, single crochet evenly along side of Flap, work 2 single crochet in first Decrease Row, single crochet evenly along side of Body, 3 single crochet in corner, single crochet across beginning chain edge, 3 single crochet in corner, single crochet along other side, work 2 single crochet in first Decrease Row, single crochet across edge of Flap, ending join with slip stitch in top of first single crochet. Fasten off.

Fold bottom of Bag up to base of flap. With sewing needle and thread, sew sides of Bag together. Fold flap over; sew snap on underside of flap and corresponding spot on front of Bag.

Fringe

Wrap CC around a 2 inches [5 cm] piece of cardboard; cut ends on one side to create fringe. Fold each in half and use crochet hook to draw fold through first single crochet at bottom edge of Bag, forming a loop. Pull ends of fringe through this loop. Pull to tighten. Make a fringe in each sc at bottom edge of Bag. Trim fringe evenly.

Strap
With CC, chain 4.

Row 1 Single crochet into 2nd chain from hook and each chain across; chain 1, turn.

Envelope Bag Reviewed by wanda rivera on 2010-01-30 *****
these bags are super cute and easy to make. I have made several of them,gave them away and everyone just loved them. I used different type of yards to get a different look and used fancy buttons. some I used handles to change the look.
