The Granny Square is a popular way of making blankets, but it can also be used to make a lovely bag. They also work out pretty big, so you don't need to sew too many together. You could easily turn this into a beach bag by making six squares instead of four for each side. Don't forget that if you make a larger bag you'll need to buy more yarn.

Here's a stylish way to carry your yoga mat to class. Because the bag is made of a mesh pattern, it will require very little yarn. So you could make it with the leftover yarn from another project. It will also be a very quick project to make. Use a variegated yarn to get a lovely colorful effect.

This is one pattern that lends itself to endless customisation. It could be used for so many purposes; the pattern suggests making it into a pencil case or makeup bag. Put a loop on the wrist (make a simple cord), and you have the perfect little bag to house your phone and cab fare on a night out. I love the little cat purse - a perfect makeup bag for me!
