I used Lori Holt’s Chunky Thread in a variety of colors. I did 5 rounds on each granny square and they finished at about 4-1/2″ square. You will need 13 squares for this project. My finished bag measures about 12″ x 12″ and is a great “purse” size. Perfect for taking craft projects on the go! It would also be great filled with some snacks, a book, and sunscreen, for a beachy afternoon!

I also added a simple scalloped border around the top edges to give it a little something extra!

Here is a diagram of how this bag is laid out.

I hope you enjoyed this beginner-friendly crochet project! I have a few more beginner-friendly CROCHET TUTORIALS here on my blog, so check those out too!
