Girly Bags I

One of my colleagues loved the Bracelets and Earrings my daughters (of 8 and 6) made a couple of weeks ago for King's Day and asked if she could buy some of them for her nieces. 

To wrap them up nicely, she asked me to crochet some girly bags. I want to make about eight bags, so she has something to choose from. In a couple of weeks there will be a garage sale in the little village where my brother lives and my daughters have planned to participate with their earrings and bracelets. They can sell the bags my colleague doesn't want, too. My girls can keep all the earnings. I just like it how they learn to deal with money this way. 

The first two bags we have called Cupcake and Strawberry.

Together my daugthers and me made up the 'themes' of the bags, but a basic pattern for the bags you can buy here

The pattern for the cupcake I found here.
The pattern for the strawberry flower I made up myself.
