  • How to stitch a knit or crochet bag. The Munro Bag - Step 1
    Step 1

    Cut 2 circles of a strong fabric, I used cord, with a diameter of 15cm.

    Make yourself a lovely crocheted rectangle 38 by 42 cm. Do whatever you like! Granny squares, chevrons, plain ole’ single crochet the list is endless.

    I used an adapted chevron:
    Repeats of 12 stiches and a three stitch turning chain to start.

    1 double crochet in the third chain, then 2 double crochet in the next chain stitch, *a double crochet in each of the next 3 chain stitches , then double crochet 2 together and double crochet two together again, double crochet in each of the next 3 chain stitches , 2 double crochets in the next chain and then 2 double crochets in the next chain again.
    repeat from *

    I changed colour each row.

    Now all that's needed is to sew it up. I tacked everything up then hand sewed it .

    I gathered up the edge of the side to give it a bit of shape and allow for expansion.

    The handles I used were just interfaced strips secured to the base, made from the same material as the sides of the bag.

    This bag definitely needs either a base (there is a description of how to do this in the Desiree Bag tutorial) or fully interfaced lining .

    You could add a zip to secure, I have just used a couple of buttons.
