Sweetheart Reusable Gift Bag using Lion Brand Mani-Pedi Yarn – Crochet Pattern & Tutorial


hi everyone welcome to the Jayda
InStitches show today we’re going to be making a pretty fully reusable gift bag
very much inspired by the romanticism of the Victorian era we’re going to be
using mani-pedi by lion brand for today’s project and we’d like to thank
Lion Brand yarns for sponsoring today’s video mani-pedi is a superfine sized one
weight yarn it’s a wool blend and it comes in lots
of pretty self-striping colors that makes it perfect for a project like this
the superfine weight yarn makes any stitch look delicate and fancy even if
it’s not difficult to do the wool gives it strength so your little reusable bag
can be used over and over and over again and it’ll maintain its shape and its
pretty little colors and the sella striping yarn makes your project
interesting without you having to worry about changing colors you want to check
out all the pretty color ways that mani-pedi comes in you can check out
lionbrand.com and we’ve got a link to their website in
the description box down below the Victorians believed that the gift should
be part of the giver so gifts and gift wrapping we’re very often handmade which
made them very popular and highly coveted they also loved details and our
little bag is not short on those we’re using two pretty simple little repeating
patterns one for the main build and one for the edging and even our little gift
bag drawstrings have cute little hearts attached to both
ends that makes them pretty cute perfect for your sweetheart and they’re not
going to come out of your bag once they’re put in if you’d like to hear
more about the gift-giving practices of the Victorians stay tuned to the end of
the video we’ve got a mini history lesson for you so let’s grab our hooks
grab our yarn we’ll head on over to the craft table and we will stitch up the
sweetest little fully reusable gift bag together in order to make our reusable gift bags
we’re using mani/pedi by Lion Brand you only need one ball for this project
each ball is 50 grams or 219 yards it’s a wool blend so it’s 75% wool
it’s a superfine weight or a size one weight yarn and this particular colorway
is called mittens you’re also going to want a pair
of scissors a yarn needle you might want a stitch marker or a safety pin just so
you can keep track of the first stitch of each row and we’re using a three
point two five millimeter hook today this is also known as a D or a three in
the US size ten in the UK and if you haven’t already subscribed to our
Channel take a lot to click that button and the bow so you never miss another
episode and once you’ve got all this together we can get started we’re going
to begin with a slipknot so we’re going to start at the bottom of the bag and
work our way up we’re going to chain 33 0:30 to begin once you have 30 chains it
won’t be very long you can sort of spread them out and hold
them between your two fingers so it’s not a very long chain but this is going
to be the bottom of the bag so the bag is going to be just a little bit wider
than this foundation chain you’re going to skip the first chain from the hook
find the second one and you’re going to work three half double crochets into it
so skip the first chain find the second one and work three half double crochets
into it when you’re working small you might want to move a little slower than
you are used to until you get comfortable working with the smaller
hook and the smaller stitches so three half double crochet worked into the
second chain from the hook you’re going to work a half double crochet now into
each of the next twenty-seven chains so one half double crochet into each of the
next twenty seven chains that will leave you with one chain left at the
of the row and I’ll catch up with you there once you’ve half double crocheted into
the next 27 chains that will leave you with one chain so one chain left don’t
mistake you’re a little knot on the end for a chain that isn’t a chain you’re
going to ignore that because it’s a knot you’re going to work three half double
crochet into the last chain and then you’re going to turn your work
so that you’re going to half double crochet into the 27 under sides of those
stitches that are all in a row so you’re done with this end chain and you’re not
going to put anything into that end chain and you can see the nice big space
there you’re only going to work a half double crochet into the underside of
each of those 27 stitches from the other side of your foundation row so you can
work over top of your short tail if you want to or leave it out and weave it in
later there’s where we just finished so that space there is where we finished
working our three half double crochets so the next space you’re looking for is
this one right here and you’re just going to half double crochet all the way
back you should have 27 half double crochets to work and then we’ll slip
stitch to join when we get back to the beginning once you’ve worked a half
double crochet into each of those 27 stitches all the way back there’s your
last half double crochet there’s the last chain or the first one but there is
your three half double crochets that we started with worked into it you’re going
to find the top of your first half double crochet and join with a slip
stitch you’ll have 60 stitches in total and something that looks like this a
little sort of flat to the bottom for your bag it’s rounded on both ends and
that’s it for the base of the bag we’re going to jump right into the little
shell stitch now and this is where you might want to use your stitch marker if
you feel you need to if we’re going to chain three to begin and the chain three
at the beginning of each row will count as a double crochet into the same stitch
that you joined in so you see that if you pull up you see that little space
you’re going to work two more double crochet into that same stitch and
there’s your first little shell made so a shell is three double crochet and the
chain three at the beginning of every row will count as a double crochet so
there’s your first show you’re gonna skip two stitches and like
I said if you feel you need to mark this with a stitch marker just so you know
where you are you can just mark the whole thing because this show is one
motif so if you feel you need to go ahead otherwise you can just sort of
eyeball it when you get background to it skip two stitches
find the next one and work a shell into it one two skip and then three double
crochet into the third stitch so skip two three double crochet into the next
stitch skip two stitches three double crochet into the next stitch and that’s
all you’re gonna do all the way around so three double crochet or one show skip
two stitches three double crochet or a shell into the next stitch I’ll see you
on the other side once you’ve worked that little shell stitch all the way
around you will have twenty shell motifs or sixty double crochet but it’s very
easy to count your little shells so just count the shells you shouldn’t have 20
of them and you’ll have 20 in every row going forward so every row goes all the
way around the bag once and every row has 20 little shells in it when you get
to the end of the row it should look something like this so
you’ve got two stitches left to skip this little guy here is what we call the
false stitch he sits right at the bottom of those chain three that began the row
that’s why I say you might want to mark your first show with a little stitch
marker because sometimes when you get back round to the beginning you might
kind of lose track of where you are it maybe looks the same if you’re working
flat so just marking that first a little motif every row just move your stitch
marker with each row will help remind you when you get back around to it that
it’s time to stop so you can start another row so once you’ve worked your
twentieth motif you skip those remaining stitches you find the top of that chain
three that you began the whole row with and joint with a slip stitch now your
little bag will start to turn into a bit of a boat shape because we’ve
established that first row so it’s going to want to do this gonna look
like a little canoe now if it’s not turning up on you don’t worry it just
might be that you’ve got nice loose tension and so its might just lay flat
on you but every row will have 20 motifs in it so from here on out your bag will
start to kind of turn into a bit of a bowl or a boat shape so if it hasn’t
done it right away don’t worry too much about it at the end of every row we join
with a slip stitch to the top of the chain through the began it and then to
start the next row you want to begin in the middle of a motif so if I’m just
going to sort of separate this you can see that that three double crochet motif
there’s nice big spaces on either side of it we’ve joined at the top of the
chain three you’re going to slip stitch into the top of that middle stitch
that’s the middle of the motif so just slip stitch so slip stitch to join in
the top of the chain three and then slip stitch immediately into the stitch next
to that so you’re sitting in the middle of the motif and here’s where we begin
every row chain three from the middle of the motif that chain three counts as a
double crochet and into the same place that you change out if you want to work
two more double crochets to complete that motif and there we go so each show will sit
directly on top of the show from the previous row hop over to the next show
find the middle stitch and work three double crochet into it so every shell is
worked into the very middle of the shell from the previous row this way all of
our shells will sit in neat alignment and all of the little spaces in between
will be right on top of each other skip to the next show it’s easy you can
kind of pull it apart find the middle stitch work three double crochet into
the top of it and you’re going to repeat that all the way around you’ll still
have 20 shell motifs and when you get back to the beginning you’re going to
join with a slip stitch to the top of that chain three that began the row so
20 motifs I’ll catch up with you at the end of Row 3 at the end of every row
make sure you’ve got 20 motifs they should all be sitting neatly on top of
the ones from the row before that will bring you up to the edge of the first
motif you made find the top of that chain 3 and join with a slip stitch to
it so you should definitely have like a little boat shape happening now 20
motifs in every single row they all sit on top of each other
before you begin any row make sure you slip stitched into the center stitch of
that motif so that you begin in the middle of it just gonna pull out it
again so you can see that so you begin in the middle chain 3 every row begins
with a chain 3 that counts us a double crochet and then finish that first shell
by working two more double crochet into the same stitch that you chained out of
and that’s your first shell made if you’re using a stitch marker make sure
you move it and you mark the first shell of your next row we’re going to do
another 10 rows of our little shell stitch and at that point you can decide
if you want to make it just a little bigger or you want to continue along
with so this pattern has a little bit of
flexibility in as far as how tall you want to make your little sack but I’m
going to have at least 12 rows of this shell stitch in total so we’ve done 2
we’re gonna do another 10 rows remember that every single shell is worked into
the middle stitch of the shell from the row before every row has 20 shells in it
you join with a slip stitch to the top of the chain 3 to finish a row and you
start a row in the middle stitch of that shell chain 3 counts as a double crochet
and I’ll see you at the end of another 10 rows of the shell stitch I have now
completed 12 rows of the little shell stitch so that’s row 13 or the 12th row
of shell stitch this little sack is now five and a half inches or fourteen
centimeters tall and five inches or 13 centimeters wide it’s a nice little size
you could certainly hide all sorts of sweet little goodies in there candy
chocolates maybe some small jewelry boxes possibly some gift cards but if
you wanted to keep adding rows of the shell stitch to make your bag taller
you’re more than welcome to and of course you should have quite a lot of
the yarn left over so you could certainly keep going and make this
bigger I should say taller if you’ve got a specific gift size in mind what you
want to do is get the size of the bag you want and then add two more rows of
our little shell stitch pattern so I will be adding two more rows of my shell
stitch pattern because I want a little bit of the bag pattern to sit out at the
top of the bag once we have it all cinched together and that’s what’s going
to give it that old-fashioned little sack look so once you’ve decided you
like the size of your bag you’re going to work two more rows of
the shell stitch pattern and the third shell stitch row from the top down will
become your drawstring row so we don’t only have to make a special drawstring
row we’re just going to use the little spaces in between our shells so once you
have a bag the size you like add two more rows of the shell stitch row I’m
going to do that now and I’ll catch up with you I finished my last two rows of
shell stitch and these are the two rows that are going to sit out top of
my little bag when it’s all cinched together so I marked the third shell
stitch rode down with a little stitch marker so that I know that that is my
drawstring row I will be leaving my drawstring in between the spaces in
between those little shells so that’s three rows down now all we want to do is
just finish off the top edge of our sack with a sweet little edging we’re going
to use a small open scallop no matter how many rows you’ve worked in your
little shell stitch pattern when you join the last of your shell stitch rows
with a slip stitch to the top of that chain three you’re going to stay right
there to begin the little open scallop so you’re not slip stitching into the
middle stitch instead you’re going to chain two into the middle stitch of your
little show you’re going to double crochet chain to and into the top of the last stitch
across that she’ll you’re going to slip stitch so just slip stitch right into
the top of that last stitch and that happens across every little shell so
let’s do that again we’re going to slip stitch into the first stitch of the
shell chain two double crochet into the top of the middle stitch chain two and
slip stitch into the top of the last stitch of that little shell and there’s
our cute little rounded open scallop that goes across the top of each one of
our shells let’s do one more together so there’s the next Shell you slip stitch
into the first stitch chain two double crochet into the top of the
middle stitch chain 2 slip stitch into the top of the
last stitch of the shell and that completes the little open scallop you’re
just going to repeat that little pattern across the top of each show all the way
around and you’ll have a sweet little open edging when you’re done when do you fork that little open
scallop all the way around there should be a little once I was sitting on the
top of each one of your shells so you should have 20 of these little open
scallops make sure you slip stitch in the last top of the last stitch of the
last little show and you can just close off by slip stitching into the edge of
that chain 3 or just underneath it that’ll just close off the row and now
you can snip your yarn fasten off and you can take a moment with your yarn
needle to leave your tail in back and forth you might want to sort of weave it
down behind one of those double crochets and then weave them back and forth
across that last row of shell now that our little sac is all done and we’ve
marked our drawstring row it’s time to make a couple of drawstrings now we’re
going to make a couple of drawstrings that we’re going to insert into our bag
and finish after they’re inserted so they’re going to start with the heart
they’re gonna end with a heart but we’re going to actually leave them through our
drawstring row before we finish them so cute little trick to keep your draw
strings from coming undone we’re going to begin with a slipknot we’re going to
chain two and into that second chain from the hook or the first chain you
made you’re going to work seven single crochet working pretty small here so once you’ve
got seven single crochet worked into that first chain you made or the second
chain from the hook you’re going to join with a slip stitch to that first single
crochet you could just ignore your short tail you can work over top of it you can
put it to the back and sort of weave it in later I’m just going to work over top
of mine because I find a little easier but from this starting point we’re going
to chain two and into that same stitch that we just joined and then change two
out of so if you pull up on it you can see that little space you’re going to
work five double crochet into that same stitch so five double crochet into the
same stitch that you just chained to out of so that’s our start now into these next
two single crochets you’re going to work a half double crochet into each of them
so one half double crochet into each of the next two stitches into the next
stitch which is going to be the very bottom point of our heart we’re going to
work single crochet chain one and into the same stitch single crochet so single
crochet chain one single crochet all into the same stitch you’re going to
half double crochet once in each of the next two stitches so we’re on the way up
the other side of our little heart here and that leaves a fun stitch left you’re
going to work five double crochet into it five double crochet chain2 and slip
stitch into the same stitch that you just double crocheted five times into so
you should have something that looks like this so you can sort of peel out
the two sides of your little heart you’re going to put your hook right
through the center of that little heart now and grab the yarn on the other side
and slip stitch and now you’re going to chain 75 alright we should all have
something that looks like this so we’ve got a little heart here and pull out the
little bottom it’s attached to a chain you’ve changed 75 and now you want to
cut yourself about two yards of yarn so cut around two yards of yarn because
that’s how we’re gonna finish our little heart make sure you cut at least two
yards pull way up on that working loop and put your hook aside and now you’re
gonna take your little sac flatten it so that your your bottom is nice and flat
and you’re going to find that row that you’ve marked it’s your third shell row
down from the top you’re going to pop over to the edge find the first little
hole first little drawstring hole you’re going to take the end of your so the
working loop that you’ve pulled up on the end of your little string and you’re
going to start weaving it through the spaces around either side so over under
over under around those shells in that row you can take your marker out nice and easy you want to do that all
the way around when you get back around to the other side it’s going to come out
on the other side of the shell from where it went in originally and you’re
going to very carefully pull out the working loop
so there’s your working loop and holding on to that working loop you’re going to
just gently pull out that long tail you left behind it’s gonna come all the way
through the bag there we go so now we’ve got the finished heart on one side so
there’s the drawstring with the finished heart on one side and now we’re going to
finish the heart on the other side so you’re gonna take your hook put it back
inside that working loop and now so you’re back inside that working loop
you’re going to find the second loop from the hook so there’s that little one
there I’m going to skip it I’m gonna go to the second one and into that I’m
going to work seven single crochet seven single crochet you might find the first
three are comfortable on one side of the chain and you can sort of turn the whole
thing past your yarn over and work the other four single crochet into that that
little chain on the other side of your drawstring there we go so you’ll have
something that kind of sits out of the edge of your drawstring like that what
you want our seven single crochet worked into the second chain from the hook make
sure you’ve got seven you’re going to join with a slip stitch to the first one
and it might help to work on a surface because the weight of your bag might
make it a little difficult for you so if it helps work down on your surface and
now we’re going to do the row two of that first heart we made exactly the
same way so we’re going to chain two to begin and into that same stitch that we
joined in we’re going to work five double crochet five double crochet into each of the
next two stitches around that little circle we’re going to work a half double
crochet so one half double crochet do the next two into the next stitch so the
bottom of our heart we’re going to work single crochet chain one single crochet
all into the same stitch now we’re coming up the other side of our little
circle you should have three stitches left you’re going to work a half double
crochet into the next two stitches so one half double crochet into each of
those two stitches there that leaves you with one stitch left so you should have
something that looks like this remember it’s easier to work on your table so the
weight of your bag doesn’t make it all sort of difficult for you to hold on to
you’re gonna work five double crochet into that last stitch chain 2 slip stitch into the same stitch
that you had the five double crochet in and now you’re going to reach into the
center of your heart that sounds kind of cute reach into the center of your art
slip stitch through the middle of it and then you can chain one across the top so
sort of chain one and just fasten off you can pull your your string right
through it make it nice and tight and there’s the little heart to finish so
obviously you won’t need all that tail you can trim trim it back you just need
enough that you can weave it in across the back of your heart so that it
disappears and there’s a heart on both sides and they will not come out so you
won’t lose this little drawstring now you can just do to do one little
drawstring like this or you can do a second one and put it through going sort
of you start it on the opposite side of the one you started so this one goes in
here you start your second one in here go all the way around and when you pull
them taut it’ll you can sort of end up pulling two out each side so I’m going
to go ahead and work a second one going the opposite direction and I’ll show you
what that looks like I just want to add when you go to sort of weave in your
little tail you might want to thread up your yarn needle and just bring your
yarn through a stitch on the chained little string just so that your heart
sits up with the sort of the main the little dippy part sort of attached to
that string that way it doesn’t hang upside down or sort of hang strangely so
you just sort of run your your yarn right through that chain the length that
you made and then you can weave the tail in around the back of your little heart
alright so there’s the first one we made and then I made a second one to start I
started weaving it through the spaces on the opposite side of where I started
this one so it starts and comes out in the opposite side and then when you grab
both and you have cinch it together you get this nice
even bunching oh my gosh it’s so cute and you can either use these as a single
tie you can sort of tie them once and you have all these little hearts hanging
off your little pouch oh my gosh it’s so cute so you can do just one with a sort
of one drawstring with the two hearts or two drawstrings so you have four hearts
and tie it up any way you like and there you go
a sweet super fancy looking highly detailed little reusable gift bag of
course you can use this to give gifts back and forth much like some of the
Victorians did or whoever gets it can just keep famous little treasures in it
tucked away for whenever they want to sort of dip into a little bag and see
something fancy the idea behind this is that you are giving someone a piece of
yourself so like I said the Victorians believed that the gift should be part of
the giver and lady spent a lot of time making gifts so highly embroidered
things maybe sewn pouches lots of knitting lots of crochet and they would
give these things to each other to their girlfriends especially along the younger
crowd they would also give them to like a favorite girl cousin that lived nearby
they might pass little gifts back and forth in the same little pouch and if
they were being courted or were newly engaged they were allowed to give their
fiance a very practical gift so nothing intimate and we’re talking like you know
shaving soap or maybe house slippers something very very practical that
didn’t suggest anything untoward but they were perfectly allowed to wrap it
up in a fancy little pouch and of course they could spend a little of time
embroidering these or working on fine little crochet delicate patterns and of
course without saying it or giving something risque by giving a gift in
something that you had spent a lot of time on you were saying I was thinking
about you or I was thinking about you you know very sweetly and this was a way
to sort of almost give a secret love note to your fiance without the old aunt
in the background like raising an eyebrow and getting all it like you know
disgusted so of course these sorts of things a lot of them still remain the
the fancy little pouches that they made they were they were such there was so
much work and delicate you know like it stitchery and everything that went into
them that you might even still have a few lingering if you’ve got great-great
grandmother’s that kept them or pass them down they may be holding potpourri
they might be holding you know little things tucked away in somebody’s
underwear drawer because they might have been considered you know a little on the
intimate side these sweet little bags have a billion different uses and the
whole notion about stuff being reusable especially gift wrapping is not new it’s
quite old mainly because when you spend a lot of time on something you wanted it
to stay around and you wanted it to be shown off so that is the inspiration
behind today’s little gift bag I hope you guys enjoyed making it along with us
and I hope you enjoyed this little mini Victorian history lesson that’s it we’ll
see you soon here on the Tate Instituto until then stay safe stay crafty and
having wonderful week bye everybody hi everybody mr. and stitches here thank

  • What a darling little bag! ๐Ÿ˜ Would be great to make for the Women's Ministry Valentine luncheon at my church. Thanks Jayda! You always have such great inspirational ideas and patterns! ๐Ÿ’•

  • What a sweet project! I love the Victorian era! Love the courting traditions and the simple acts of kindness they shared so prevalently then as well. I like to make things like this and just give them out randomly, sometimes with a little chocolate and a note that says a sweet little something. I work in a large hospital and many times people who work so very hard go unnoticed. I used your soap pouch and added some little chocolates and a note that said โ€œyou a appreciated more then you knowโ€ and left it on a womanโ€™s cart (anonymously) who cleans the rooms in the ER, it was worth more then gold to see the smile it brought to her face!
    Thank you Jayda for sharing your talent as well as your kind and gentle spirit! Be Blessed!

  • Hi Jada, I love this bag, I'm going to make a couple to put a little gift in for my daughters and granddaughters, for valentines day, thanks

  • Love all the steam punk crochet patterns and this would fit into this category . We tend to fall back to our native heritage when it comes to fashion and would love to see more of these types of patterns . On saying that , I love your jumper and was wondering if you had a pattern or something similar for it !! Love your work and I am a big follower .

  • OMG!!!!!! So cute ๐Ÿ™‚ Looking forward to giving this one a go…. maybe in Christmas colours to get in early with the gift bag making ha ha x

  • Cute Victorian bag, great idea! Love that era! Watch many Victorian shows and movies! Thank you! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿงถ๐Ÿ˜ป

  • Love the project and idea, however, the lighting of this particular tutorial didn't do the true color of the yarn any justice. It was a little too dark (and reddish). No offense meant, just an observation. I adore size 1 fibers and hope you'll have more tutorials in the future featuring lighter weight yarns!! โ™กโ™ก

  • This is so cute!! Thank you for all your hard work making these patterns and videos for us! I learned how to crochet watching your videos, so thank you!! I went right out and bought this yarn so I can start this project today ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿงถ

  • Thank you so much. I love learning from you. I made my bag with some baby sport weight yarn so it's bigger than your example. But I am sure I will put it to use. The next baby shower perhaps… Again, thank you.

  • This is just darling! I will certainly be making this. Honestly, you make the best tutorials, thank you for another marvelous idea! BTW, I sent 100 of those little Christmas stockings to the Christmas party thrown for our local Special Olympics teams, all stuffed with candy, and all inside a big festive basket. They absolutely loved them! I just can't thank you enough for the easy idea. It was so joyful to see their happiness ๐Ÿ‘
