My photography skills are less than desirable when it comes to photographing non-flat things. The bag really looks better than the picture might suggest! I like making it with the small squares, but it might look nice using two large squares for each side, instead. You’d just have to do a little math to make sure that the small ones for the bottom and sides matched up. Or you could use a flat crocheted piece.
I’m still pondering on the finish. I think a magnetic snap is just the ticket. Right now it kind of looks like a little cosmetic clutch. But it’s also just the right size for keeping track of remotes. Or pencils. Or candy. It measures 8 inches wide, 5 inches tall, and 2 inches deep. It would be easy to make several different kinds of handles/straps for it. I have a little more finishing to do on this one but I’m pleased with the way the shape worked out. I’m already wanting to start on the next one!
