part 2

This week I was determined to finish part 2 of the  Wildflower Bag CAL before the next section is released on Thursday. Success! This section of the pattern was much easier to do as it did not require constant counting the way the flower squares did.

I really like the way the rings for the strap are crocheted right into the piece. You can see them up at the top corners. It makes them feel very sturdy. The loop at the top center is a button hole loop. It is attached to the back side and the button will be on the front. I’m still trying to make a final decision on the buttons so I have not sewn them on yet.

Right now, the bag measures 15 1/2″ across by 11″ high (40cm x 27cm), so it is nice and roomy.  Perhaps a good project bag?
