Mariposa Prairie Bag Crochet Along… Week 2!!!

Mariposa Prairie Bag Crochet Along… Week 2!!!

Are you ready for Week 2 of this fun CAL? This fun Mariposa Prairie Summer Bag will be a 3 week project… Two colors of yarn, one great bag!

This fun bag is a draw string style bag, you can open easily to put items in, and you can make 1 or 2 straps by just pulling up sections of the strap to create either strap style… Pictures below

Last week you made the bottom of the bag using your contrasting color. This week you will create the side of the bag using one simple stitch back and forth… Are you ready for Week 2??? So easy and quick!!!

One strap style drawn at the back of the bag
With two handles made from pulling up the strap on each side of the bag

Here are the details:

  • Week 1 (8/8/21) Grab your yarn and crochet the bottom of the bag
  • Week 2 (8/15/21) Crochet the side of the bag
  • Week 3 (8/22/21) join the bottom to the sides, make top of bag, make strap

It is that easy, I will walk you through each week!
