blue bag

I was going to make a blanket with these crocheted blocks but I wasn't happy with the way it was turning out so I used them to make a bag instead.

I crocheted a long strip (2 rows of DC) that I used as the sides and strap for the bag. I lined this long strip with muslin so the strap wouldn't stretch.

I sewed a drawstring bag, and then sewed that inside the crochet bag.
I used a button as a ribbon gatherer and I'm planning to do this a lot in the future as I have a LOT of buttons and it looks so cute. Just knot the ribbon ends so they cant pull through the button holes.

And I sewed one of my labels into the side seam :)
