Yay it’s summer time.
Today we will play a little Q & A, xoxo.
Do you have plans for the holidays?
What items do you always carry on summer vacation?
For me it’s a bag, bag is a must isn’t it ?
What fruit reminds you of summer?
Yes, exactly. Fresh fruits!
By the way what’s your favorite fruit? Pineapple? Watermelon? Melon? Apple? or what?
During the summer I think watermelon is a very suitable fruit as a dessert, not that I don’t like the other fruit.
So, can you guess what we will make today?
Yep a bag, a bag to embrace the summer xoxo.
Can’t wait to make it one for yourself?

(Make two, front and back) I use Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice Grapefruit,
Row 1 : Ch 1, sc 8,sl st.
Row 2 : Ch 2, dc in same st as ch 2, 2 dc in the next st and all around, and join with a sl st on top of second ch (16 st on total).
Row 3 : Ch 2, dc in same st as ch 2, dc in the next st, 2 dc in the next st, dc in the next st repeat the same step 2dc,dc,2dc,dc (24 stitch in total), join with a sl st on top of second ch.

Row 5 : Ch 2, dc in each st all around (48 st in total), join with a sl st on top of second ch.

Handsewing The Seeds
Took the yarn for seeds (I use Caron Simply Soft Dark Country Blue) using tapestry needle and begin to work on the main body part, shape the seeds like V.
Crochet Side Part
I use Bernat Super Value Mint.
Row 1 : Ch 72, join with a sl st into ring corner to corner (first st and last st).
Row 2 : Without ch, sc all around about 3 row (2,3,4).
Row 5 : Sc 26, skip 10 st and ch 10 after sc, continue sc 26.
Row 6 : Sc all around about 3 row (6,7,8), join with a sl st and then begin to sew the side part and main body part using hook with sc for the lining all around the circle shape, cut yarn and do the same with the back side.
Placing The Zipper and Bag Handle
Handsewing the zipper with sewing needle and sewing yarn.
Make sure you use zipper and sewing yarn with the same color so it will look nice and neat
Last but not least, you can use any bag handle you have for this round bag, so you don’t have to make new bag handle for this project.
