Simple Handbag *pattern*

This is a very simple design I came up with. The entire pattern is done with 2 strands of yarn held throughout. I've tested this pattern twice, but if u find any mistakes, feel free to let me know! Also, I'd love to see your finished projects. I'd like to start a section on my blog with other people's interpretations of my patterns! Email me any picture of your final projects!

Enjoy the pattern!

 I got a pretty, simple rose pattern from here. I just didnt use the leaves that are also stated in the pattern. After I was done, I just sewed the rose onto the bag and that was it!
Hope u enjoy!!!

You can also make variations of this bag using this same pattern. Just add more rows (in the pattern its row 4-10) to create a taller bag. And in the pattern where you're creating the handles, just make more chains to get a longer handle. This is a different bag I came up with...

The possibilities are endless with this pattern! You can use a bow, a rose or just leave it plain. I like the rose better personally, but its totally up to you! Feel free to email me pictures of your finished projects! I'd love to start a section on my blog showcasing other's interpretation of my patterns!!
