This cute boxy looking pouch is a gem! I am so pleased with how these turn out. It’s just perfect for any retreat, or gift, or swap bag, or make-up bag, or wet bag, or shaving bag, or pencil bag, or toy bag…. did I say sewing bag?
The Retreat Bag is a simple zippered pouch with a wide base and a wide structured opening. There is a casing in the top where you insert two wire frames (one on each side), which helps it stay open when open, and helps turn the corners down when closed. It has two optional slip pockets inside and a long zipper that helps it open wide.

Free Crochet Pattern – Little Doily Bag
This is a very simple, small purse measuring approximately 14cm x 10cm. The design is very basic, so these little purses are suitable for beginners and can be quickly made up.
You will need yarn in 8ply and a 4mm hook. I used cotton, but acrylic or wool would work too. These instructions are in US terms.
To make the purse chain 22, turn and half double crochet (hdc) in the third stitch from the hook and each stitch across (20hdc). Chain 2, turn and hdc in each stitch across the row. Keep working back and forth (remembering to ch 2 at the end of each row) until you have a rectangle approximately 20cm long. I made this bag with stripes, alternating two rows in each color – and 4 rows (rows 8-10) at the bottom of the bag (where you fold it).

Tote bags are so popular that you can not stop buying/making them almost everyday. With a big enough tote bag you can bring all your tools wherever you go; whether it be your make up set, comb, purse or even camera, laptop etc. Although you can buy ready made tote bags, there’s a Kick in making one. And making those are incredibly easy.
