I've been making this crochet bag, using Elle DK cotton in ivory. It took five x 50g balls.
I lined the bag with off-white cotton fabric used double. I sewed a pocket in the inside. I put beads on the ends of the handles before sewing into place. There are also beads on a chain hanging at each side of the bag, just for decoration.
Where did I get the idea? Well, I saw a picture on Pinterest, and got the idea from there. There was no pattern, so I just did my own thing.
The bag is intended as a present for someone.
