A little nautical flavor
I wanted it slightly smaller than my yarn bag, so I can carry my diary etc around and a little sturdier. So I single crocheted from the base upward.
Single crochet with 8 ply bamboo viscose makes for a pliable yet sturdy bag.
To make the woven decoration I did a single row of treble every second stitch. I crocheted a ribbon of trebles in light blue and threaded it through and tied it off with a reef knot.
I decorated it with a silver starfish charm. I think it looks rather pretty. It easily fits my A5 notebook and diary, pens, the wallet I made.
The colors are navy blue, light blue and a light mint green.
