I have a small update. Not in line with the typical writing stuff, but it’s a fun update all the same.
With the major release of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, both my husband and I have been having a blast at home playing together. So, I figured now would be the perfect time to share this cute crochet pattern of a bell bag!
I was motivated to make my own after missing out on a preorder bonus. Honestly, I think it worked out for because this one has so much more charm and can be repurposed as a dice bag or small toiletries bag. And with the pandemic, there’s nothing to do except stay in and study or play games. So, this was a nice change of pace from the “typical” home activities.
It’s a very simple pattern, and any beginner should be able to follow along.

And, that’s it you’re finished!
It probably takes 2 hours tops to finish, and it’s a great gift for any Animal Crossing fan. I churned out a bunch of them while watching some TV. I stuffed mine full of candy and amiibo cards to give around to my friends, and it was such a hit with them.
