Its a bag

A couple of months back I used a leftover ball of yarn and crocheted this piece with a vague idea that I would make a bag. Alone it was a bit boring just a pretty mint green piece.

Yesterday it was transformed.

Playing with some more flowers - these really are fun for decorating things.

Pretty pink and white this time.

I sewed a lining with a zip in the top and attached it to the outer bag with blanket stitch around the upper edge.

Sewed a pretty pink strap and attached it on the outside.

Enclosed a little treasure and sent in on its way to Miss8.

Sure hopes she likes it as much as I do.

Wishing lots of fun in your happy place this week.

Looks great! I am crocheting up embellishments with leftover yarn but have no idea what I will do with them. I don't sew much so anything with a lining would certain be stretching it for me. :/ I'm sure Miss8 loved her gift. Best wishes for the week ahead. Tammy
