Being completly infatuated with Japan and at the moment crochet, I decided to make this Sakura drawstring pouch.







It has an extra sturdy bottom, made by two flat circles with a piece of felt in between and lot's of double crochets.

It's like you read my mind!
I stood infront of the yarn in Micheal's today looking for just the right pink for cherry blossom, and I am making a makeup bag for my son's girlfriend Smiley

This is lovely, really lovely.
I'd have been nervous of the dark dark tree trunk, but it all works.

How did you make the flowers?  They look quite small, I've not been able to make flowers that small, are they all directly into a magic ring?

Really nice Smiley  Well done you, and thanks for sharing.

That is so cool; I really love the design.
And the fact that the bottom is the color of the branch; that detail makes me happy in my heart <3

Thanks for all the lovely comments!

I made the flowers bij chaining 6 and joining at the end. Then I did a dc, ch1, dc and a slst. Make sure that the beginning tail is wrapped in with that. That makes one petal. Repeat another 4 times for 5 petals and fasten of.

I hope this makes any sense Tongue

The dark branches give it this beautiful Japanese touch. I like it!

Beautiful! My best friend loves all things Japanese, and she just recently volunteered to be the victim of my crafty gifting habits. I might just totally steal this idea from you. Totally brilliant.
