Today’s project: Treasure Bag
Size: 6 inches tall, 4 inches wide and deep.
Yarn: RHSS Shaded Dusk.
Notes: I have become oddly interested in making bags of all sorts. I guess this means I’m becoming a bag lady… This bag is very small and might make a nice little treasure bag or a gift bag. I started with five 4-inch solid granny squares. I joined them into a box shape with an SC join on the outside. This made it sit up nicely and have defined corners. Next I did four rounds of DC and a round of SC around the top of the box. Finally I made two drawstrings by making a chain with two strands held together. I threaded the drawstrings front to back so that the top closed in a pleated fashion. You can tie the strings on the front and the back, at the sides, or even on top to make little handles. I’m kind of pleased with my little bag I came up with. I see how I could do the joins a little bit better on the next one but overall it’s good!
