it's been a while since i've posted a project, so i made sure to take pictures of this one as i went along.
http://www.bewitchedbubbles.com/other/crochetbag.jpg
1. i crocheted a rectangle twice the length i wanted the bag to be. i didn't really have a size in mind, i pretty much just eyeballed it. (the finished size wound up being about 4 inches square.) the panel was done in double crochet, with the 4th row from either end done in triple crochet.
2. i cut a piece of felt to fit within the triple crochet rows.
3. i then folded the crochet panel and the felt in half and sewed the sides. i did a basic whip stitch - it's not pretty, but it should hold up well.
4. i sewed from the outside of the bag along the top of the felt lining. i added rocaille beads as i went along for a little bit of embelishment. you can sort of see them in pics 5 and 6.
5. i made the ties with a simple chain stitch and used the crochet hook to weave them through the triple crochet rows.
6. the bag with both ties in place

et voila! drawstring bag Cheesy

Cute!

I've made heaps of little crocheted bags, but I've never thought to line them! I usually do mine in the round. For the row that I want the string to go through, I skip every other stich and chain for the space, then I do a row or two above it solid again.

i'm planning to do the next one in the round, as soon as i figure the lining out.
i figured that if it's lined, then things like keys and the cell phone antenna won't poke through.

i sent that bag out as part of a swap a couple of months ago, but if i remember correctly it was about the size of a cd jewel case. so, 5 or 6 inches by 4 or 5 inches? something like that  Smiley
