Sharon Bag Crochet Patterns

Sharon Bags

Things are starting to cool down here in my neck of the woods.  It is time to start breaking out the thicker, bulkier yarns that have been waiting in my cupboard for a couple of months.  In today’s post I am going to share with you my Sharon Bag Crochet Patterns.  It is my very first time sharing a FREE crochet pattern on my website!

You can download an Ad Free version of this pattern from my Etsy Shop here or from the Ravelry Store here.

The Sharon Bag is named after my mom, Sharon.  She bought a new iPad and asked me to make her something she could carry it around in.  Therefore the Sharon Bag was created.

In this post, not only are you getting the 1 free crochet pattern of the Sharon Bag, but 2 free crochet patterns in one!  I designed 2 versions of the Sharon Bag  because some people don’t have a protective case around their tablet like I do, so I made a smaller version for those of you who have smaller tablets or just want a smaller bag.

By no means is the Sharon Bag just for electronic tablets.  The Sharon Bag can be used as a Purse, a Makeup Bag, a Phone Bag, and can be used many other ways.  You can accessorize the Sharon Bag as well.  You can add a button, a magnetic closure, a shoulder strap, and more!

Now that all of that has been said, here is version 1, which is the Large version of the Sharon Bag.  I shipped this version to my mom and she says it’s a GREAT fit!  If you have never done Braid stitches or Cable stitches, there are great YouTube videos attached that you can watch.  I know I had to watch it a couple of times when I tested a pattern that introduced me to these Braid/Cable stitches.

Wrapped In Love Set-Cancer Awareness

 

This post is titled “Wrapped In Love Set-Cancer Awareness.”  Today I want to tell you about a crocheted hat and cowl set I designed for Cancer Awareness which is recognized in October.  I call it the ‘Wrapped In Love Set!’  I designed this crochet pattern with all of my loved ones who were diagnosed with cancer.  There are quite a few women in my family who were diagnosed with one form or another of this disease.  I Praise God and am glad to say they beat the disease, they are true Cancer Survivors!

Amazon Business is changing the way companies buy supplies. For most small businesses, buying supplies can be time-consuming and frustrating. Finding the best product at the best price with the most convenient payment terms can be a challenge, especially when they have other tasks that need to be completed. Amazon Business is the solution and brings big benefits to businesses of all sizes and industries.

In designing the ‘Wrapped In Love Set’ there are rows and rows of hearts that go around the head and neck.  Therefore they are wrapped in love.  In crocheting the items for my Etsy Shop I used Red Heart yarn called “With Love,” so the wearer is wrapped in more LOVE!  I wrote this pattern in 3 different sizes:  Child, Men, and Women.  A great thing about the ‘Wrapped In Love Set’ is that the hat and cowl are reversible!  The wearer can wear the hat and cowl set 2 different ways!  You can find the Wrapped in Love Set on my website in my Etsy Shop Items under Clothing Accessories.
