We hope to inspire your creativity with the projects we share here. We are home schoolers and love to be different, learn new things and have fun. We try to be as open minded as possible and when people say you should do something in a certain way, we ask why? Why should we follow suit? We are all unique and process things in different ways, so we should be free to express ourselves in our own way.

I hope this brings you creative joy and inspiration.

MY FIRST CROCHET PROJECT Belt Bag - FREE PATTERN included below and Download Details Here

This is the first item I crocheted.  I made it for my daughter, Kayleigh, to hold her MP3 Player and I put a belt on it so she could wear it around her waist.  This was very straight forward and easy to make.  I made one long rectangle for the bag, changing colour (by fastening off at the end of a row and attaching the new yarn) approximately every 4 rows.  Then all I did was fold it over to the size I wanted and sewed up the sides.  For the belt, I chained to a length that fitted around my daughter’s waist and treble crocheted 2 rows.  I sewed on a popper fastener so she could put the belt on and off easily.  I also sewed on a button with a loop of yarn to do up the flap of the bag.  Kayleigh still uses this bag now, usually when she is vacuuming, riding her bike or roller skating.


The finished size of the bag was approx. 4.7″ (12cm) by 4.7″ (12cm).  The belt was approx. 35.4(90cm) in length.


I worked in UK Treble Crochet/tr [US Double Crochet/dc] and UK Double Crochet/dc [US Single Crochet/sc] stitches.


Yarn

Robin Double Knit/DK (shade - Lavender 053, Pink 046).

1 (each colour) x 100g (3.5oz/328yds/300m) balls.

Weight category: UK DK [US 3/Light worsted, DK].

Tension/gauge: 24 stitches x 32 rows = 4″ (10cm) on size 3.25mm/UK 10 [US D/3] - 4mm/UK 8 [US G/6] hook.

The crochet hook I used was a 4mm/UK 8 [US G/6].


I would give the Robin DK yarn a 3 out of 5 for the following reasons:-

- It was easy to work;

- There is a large choice of colours available;

- The feel of it wasn’t brilliantly soft but does get softer and floppy after washing.  It would make great cardigan’s, jumpers and accessories;

- The cost of yarn is very reasonable - I paid about £1.79 per 100g ball;

- Would I use this yarn again? YES.
