This bag uses 4 different type of Granny-style construction to create a small bag that recalls vintage Valentine’s Day cards.

It is comprised of a Granny Mandala bottom based on the pattern on the Crochet with Raymond Blog (

The handle is a modified version of the Granny Stripe Blanket from Lucy at the Attic 24 Blog (

One side of the bag is a motif-centered granny square – Center Heart Square by Ginger Badger (,

The other side is a classic granny square.

All of the pieces are joined with single-crochet seams on the outside of the bag for a decorative, raised seam. By the time you are finished, you will be familiar with each of these techniques.
