Granny's Valentine Bag
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 (http://crochethealingandraymond.wordpress.com/2010/11/11/...).
The handle is a modified version of the Granny Stripe Blanket from Lucy at the Attic 24 Blog (http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/2010/05/granny-striping...).
One side of the bag is a motif-centered granny square – Center Heart Square by Ginger Badger (http://www.heartmadeblessings.org/Patterns/Centerheart.php),
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.
