This Crochet Pattern is called the Windmill Bag as it is made with rectangles that are sewn together like a Windmill. This is a paid pdf pattern which is also available in The Crochet Club.
So often we use crochet patterns that are complicated to make an intriguing design or creation. This bag crochet pattern might look very complicated, but it’s actually super easy, fast to make and extremely soft.
I used Red Heart Amore yarn which I find was the perfect choice for this bag. You can easily turn this bag into a pillow on the go if you need to.
In fact, it only uses single crochet stitches and has a very soft felt lining inside which I got from Joann. You do not need to use a sewing machine in order to add the lining, but you can.
Furthermore, I added grommets to the top edges of the bag such that handles can be added easily. The Windmill Bag is the perfect project bag for on the go. Take your crochet projects in this bag with you crochet while running errands.
Make sure you add the pattern to your Ravelry Favorites for future reference.
You can get the crochet pattern for the Windmill Bag on either Ravelry, Etsy, Love Crochet or my new Membership The Crochet Club. The Crochet Club sure has so much more to offer than just pdf patterns. You get tutorials, references and a complete VIP treatment as well.
