Boy's sleepover backpack and blanket

Since I made a bag for a girl I thought it was only fair to make one for a boy as well. I used variegated yarn on the bag and made a ripple afghan to go with it.

Slumber party bag and blanket

I was trying to figure out a way to use up some of  my stash of pink leftovers and came up with this. The blanket is just basic granny squares in different shades of pink. The bag is crocheted in the round starting with 8 sc and increasing every Rnd  to Rnd 13 with 112 sc. Then crochet  evenly until the bag is 9 inches tall. Then 5 rows of V stitch (dc, ch 1, dc) in every other sc. The drawstring is a simple chain to desired length. The straps are to desired length and 5 rows of all sc to keep it a little stiff without stretching. The stripes are 5 rows each.

Well, my first craft bazaar was a total bust. I did manage to get a bigger table, and for free. But I didn't sell a single item. There were no other vendors with crocheted items, everybody else was selling paper goods and jewelry, and in one case some awesome paper bead jewelry and I think that is what everybody was looking for. There was pretty good business going on all around me but none for me. Hopefully my stuff will do better at a garage sale next year. Until then, I better find some storage room somewhere.
