Tiny Crochet Halloween Bag, Fill It With Love!

October 30th, 2008 · 5 Comments

As I was creating this pattern and writing it out I was thinking about love.  You see, my main driving force for coming up with these crochet creations is my love for my daughter.  The things I create make her happy.  She treasures them and talks about how they are special because I made them.  I crocheted a blanket for her bed last year.  She wants that blanket to be the thing that touches her at night.  No sheet, just the blanket.  I think about the two afghans that I have that my mom made years ago.  Although my mom is gone now and I am a grown woman, still if I am not feeling well, it is one of the afghans that she made that I want covering me.  They are filled with love.

I hope you enjoy this pattern for the tiny crochet Halloween bag.  If you want, you can put a few small treats in it, but definitely fill it with love!
