T/W BAG CAL DAY 5

We are almost there CALers 🙂 Are you all caught up? I hope so.

Today, we want to sew on the “tool box” on the single crochet section we did  just after the trinity stitch. Use a large needle (anyone will do) I used a carpet needle to sew on. I am confident you know how to sew 🙂

 Next, we are making the flap for the tool box: we are using the Catherine’s wheel/Starburst stitch.
The Catherine’s Wheel/Starburst stitch had to be changed up a bit, if you do not mind I want you to adapt this stitch to fit your bag, I will tell you how I did mine 🙂
I started out with 20 stitches plus 6 and 1 just like in the You Tube tutorial but instead of 3 chains separating the single crochets I did only 2 chains and instead of  3 SC  I only did 2 SC. Next the clusters was only 5 double crochets instead of the 7 shown in the video.  Because of the bulky yarn everything had to be downsized for it to look and fit properly.
  

Homework : chain enough stitches to fit your bag to your body use pins to make certain you have enough arm room, check photograph.

 I am sewing on the handles the way you see it in the photograph, next, please sew the flap on. I will share the way I did mine.

Let us stop here, we have enough homework 🙂

See you tomorrow to wrap everything up.
