Crochet Backpack

I’ve lost my Tinkerbell backpack. I always used it when I went to Disneyland. It was just the right size and fit comfortably. I have no idea where it went. I think it’s around here somewhere ready to be found. I thought about buying a new one. Then I spied all those crochet squares I made for the Craft Yarn Council course I took. An idea took hold.

What to do with all those samples has been on my mind off and on since I finished the course. A blanket? Nah, I have lots of those. Purses? Maybe… A backpack? Yes! I started rummaging through what I had, thinking I could mix and match, but when I actually tried to put pieces together, I was disappointed. Why oh why did I use so many different colors and types of yarn?!

I managed to pull out 8 squares that were the same color red and lilac. I made two groups of four and crocheted them together. Then I made a long strip of tunisian crochet for the middle part of the backpack.

I’m currently working the top with red Caron One Pound Yarn.

Not sure how I want to finish the closure yet. Zipper? Flap? Or pull top? We’ll see.
