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.
