What’s in the Bag this Time?

Posted on: April 21, 2012

Recently I’ve made a number of items…scarves…springtime shawls…and hopefully I’ll post some of those FOBs (finished objects) in the near future.

In the meantime I made a little red bag!  How little?

It’s made of thread, something I don’t normally use.  I decided to give it a try with something small.  How small?

It’s done in the round until the flap, which is done by going back and forth.

I also added a chain across the top for the buttonhole.

I added a border in single crochet around the opening.

The button was created separately then hand stitched to the bag.

So what’s inside?

…well I’ve mentioned in my main blog Comments from Cathy that I occasionally travel on the job

…and if there’s one thing I want to have when I’m on the road, it’s a nice cup of tea…so this handy little bag makes sure that I have a small stash of tea bags tucked away in my purse.

This particular one is Blackberry and Elderflower by Taylors of Harrogate in the UK.

So happens I found it on-line in the US at the English Tea Store.

Hope you enjoyed my little creation!

I think it’s cute and practical – happy crocheting!

Very cute, what a great idea.

Thanks. I have to admit it wasn’t an original idea..don’t remember where I saw it….but the design was mine! 😉
