Make the panels

Join two squares with sc’s in outer loops, RS facing you. Join the other 2 squares too. Now you have 2 panels.

I made a lining for my bag. Choose a piece of fabric and cut a piece of 24,5×24,5cm, fold in two which makes the piece 12×24 cm, sew up over length and width, keep upper part open. Fold upper part double and sew up loosely. Sew the bottom and upper part of the little bag you made on the WS of the panel. Attach a button if you like.

Join the panels

Join the two panels with sc’s, starting in the top left of the bag, make 3sc’s in the two corners at the bottom. Sc around upper edge. Fasten off needle close.


Make a knot cord with 2 colours. I made mine 80 cm long. Make two pompoms and attach them on the bag where the strap begins and ends.
