Daisy Mae Crochet Bag Crochet Along

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Please read my disclosure for more info.

Guess what?  We are going to do a crochet along!  My friends… meet the Daisy Mae Crochet Bag which we will be making over a couple of weeks as a fun crochet along!  I’m so excited about this bag and let me tell you why.Daisy Mae Crochet BagI’ve been wanting to make this bag forever.  I love the big roominess of it.  The very unique handles (hint: they are not your normal single crochet).  The idea that you can take a granny square–or a variation of it–and turn it into something amazing–well.. it makes my heart soar.  And then my imagination goes crazy..thinking of all the different kinds of granny squares I can make..and different purses I can make!

Do you do that too?  Think about all the things you can make and get a little rush of excitement?  Maybe that’s just me.

I thought it would be fun to do this as a crochet along (CAL).  I’ve never done one before.. so in last week’s newsletter, I asked my readers… ‘would you be interested in doing a crochet along?’ and then I said… ‘just hit reply’.

Did I mention I have 10,000 people on my email list?

And GUESS WHAT!?!?!

They WANT TO DO A CROCHET ALONG!  Yippee!

I’m really excited about the Daisy Mae Crochet Bag and I can’t wait to tell you all about how this is going to work.  And .. please.. if big ole daisies aren’t your thing.. just find a similarly size crochet square and join along.  I will tell you how to adapt that to work in this pattern!

Here Is What You’ll Need:

Materials:

NOTE:  Lining and a closure for the purse is optional.  Purse can be used without a lining and/or closure.  A lining requires use of a sewing machine, 1/2-3/4  yard of fabric, magnetic closure.  If not lining, you may wish to purchase a button to use in closing the purse.

Resources and tutorials you may find helpful in following this pattern: Crochet AbbreviationsUS to UK Crochet Conversion Chart.  Find links to stitches on the “Tutorial” menu: Getting Started will show basic stitches used in many patterns and Crochet Stitch Dictionary shows our growing collection of crochet stitch tutorials.  I really like to use the invisible seamless join when finishing pieces that get sewn together (in this project this is an optional step).

Size:

Each square is approximately 4.5” x 4.5” before joining (this includes a final round to prepare for joining).  The finished bag is 17.5” wide by 18.5” tall (including handles).

Remember.. the crochet along starts Friday morning and don’t forget to join the Crochet 365 Knit Too Club on Facebook!

  1. I’m loving this, Cheryl. The bag is so pretty and I’m already planning several more –like poinsettias with a red background for Christmas. First though, finishing this one. I’m using yarn from my stash, and since my pink yarn wasn’t handy when I MADE THE FIRST MOTIF I USED SOME DARK BARN RED THAT WAS ABOUT TO BE PUT AWAY FOR THE SEASON. NOW IT IS BECOMING MY NEW DAISY MAY BAG. THANK YOU FOR THIS PATTERN.

    1. So glad you love the pattern! Come on over to the Crochet 365 Knit Too Facebook group (link in the post). That way you can post your photos and the club can help you if you get stuck!
