My own one-of-a-kind bag filled with lots of love and warmth. I crocheted the base first using single crochet. With the short and compact stitch, close-by together, making the base durable and sturdy. Picked up and knit around the base, creating a wide-bottomed bag, allowing plently of room for Jayne's stuffs or just about anything. Weave an I-cord drawstring through eyelets for closure which was then sewn onto the 2 corner side of the bottom. The Chenille DK is a stronger yarn which is self-supporting with no linning needed.
