For this challenge I used this pattern:

To make this:



This picture gives a better idea of the color and shows the clasp I put on it:



Price of materials:

I used less than one whole skein of LB Homespun. It came from my stash, so I didn't have a receipt, but I know I bought it at JoAnn so while I was there the other day I snapped this pic with my phone:



That's the regular price, though it was on sale for $3.99.

And here's the receipt for the clasp:



It's the "slvr classic clasp" for $2.50.

Total price: $7.49.

Thanks! I got mine at JoAnn, so I'm sure you could find something similar at Michael's or Hobby Lobby. I found it in the "embellisments" section with the buttons.  Smiley

Very nice! It makes me sick that people go to Anthropologie and pay 95 dollars for similar things.
