If you’ve ever needed a gift bag, this little number might be just right for you! I love the use of ribbon for the handles – but you could crochet a handle, of course. The simple pattern is offered free by Tamara on her blog and is accompanied by very helpful photos. If you’ve never done a FPDC or BPDC, this is the time to start since there are only a few and they are used to create the cute heart shape on the front of the bag. This one is a keeper!
BTW, don’t worry that you’re seeing this too late for Valentine’s Day this year. The heart shape will mean Love to any gift recipient on any gift occasion. Just change the color of yarn to the recipient’s favorite and you’ve got a handy gift bag for many occasions.
