Crochet Purse *Pattern*

I've always loved these types of bags, I call them circle bags, but here's my version with a sewn on lining.

trc- triple or treble crochet

**This bag is made in pieces, so be prepared to sew parts together when you're done**

Circles of bags (make 2)
 **work in rounds & use a marker so you'll know where the beginning of the circle starts**
MC 8
rnd 1- 2 sc in ea sp around (16)
rnd 2- *1 sc in nxt 2 sp, 2 sc in nxt sp* (22)
rnd 3- *1 sc in nxt sp, 2 sc in nxt sp* (27)
rnd 4-7-keep working in rounds ( increasing by 1 after every round. ex: you should do 1 sc in nxt 4 sp in rnd 4; 1 sc in nxt 5 sp  in round 5 and so on)-

Body of Bag

continue to rnd 42

Straps (make 2)
ch 76

**If you want to sew on a lining, do it before sewing parts of the bag together**

Sewing
Make sure the body of the bag fits around the circleon 1 end, take the circle and sew the body of the bag to it, do the same for the other end and 2nd cirlce.
Sew the straps on any way you'd like, just make sure they're even and the same height on both sides
