I had some bright blue yarn but wasn’t quite sure how I wanted to use it. When I looked through my stash and realized there was some white yarn I finally settled on a blue drawstring bag with some white stripes!
It’s done in the round. This is the same basic pattern often used for hats as well as bags.
Using a relatively small crochet hook results in a tight stich pattern – it works nicely for a bag!
To create room for a drawstring there are double crochets worked with evenly spaced chains.
A white ruffle with blue striped trim was added as an embellishment.
You can see the difference in the bag with the ruffle turned upward versus when it’s folded down, i. e. how it will look when the bag is used.
The drawstring is threaded through the bag then secured.
Now it’s ready to go!
A summer bag in blue! Practical and fun!
