Pattern: Nursery Granny Square from Val Pierce's Book here.
Aldi Shopping Bag
I made 36 squares using up oddments of blue and green DK.
I sewed each set together for the four sides and crocheted round the edge in a colour to match the bag.
The floor panel was completed using an old favourite, see perfect pencil case here.
I did the base in Aran yarn.
I then crocheted the sides together and sewed them to the bag, adding a row of trebles around the top.
I made the handles with a base chain of 80, Aran in the middle and DK around the edge - all trebles.
Then I sewed the pompom trim on.
I then filled it with bowls, plates, cutlery, a cool box, napkins, tea towel, glasses and a citronella candle.
Just need some sun now.
