Crochet Bag for Beginners

This crochet bag for beginners is my recent design. I created this mini crochet bag using half double crochet ( U.S.)/ half treble crochet (U.K.) stitch for the base. I also used my favourite bobble stitch for the border and piping in the middle of the bag. I love pearls and used a pearl strap for the bag handles and a pearl bead for the bag button.
