Flower Button Small Bag

I finally managed to put the lining. I used recycled black fabric (it used to be Hubby’s slack). Also put a zipper. A Zipper is a must, since I don’t want all my things come out if I drop my bag. I want all my things are secured inside.

Here are the lists of things that I can put inside:
1. Name card holder
2. Key chain holder (also function as my wallet)
3. Tissue
4. Camera
5. Hand sanitizer
6. Lip gloss
7. Hand phone

Pattern: Flower Button Small Bag
Source: My Own
Materials: Karabella Vintage Cotton (100% cotton, pink), Honeysuckle Yarns by Elmore-Pisgah (100% cotton, white), Local thread (100% acrylic, black)
Hook: Tulip Crochet Hook size 7 (4 mm)
Total Cost: USD .50 for the zipper, the yarn is leftover, the lining and the button is recycled.
Start Date: 16 January 2007
Finish Date: 16 February 2007
All entry about this project

Took me 1 month to finish this project because I also did other project in between. Also I don’t really like single crochet. It bored me to death. I enjoyed attaching the button, the lining and the zipper, though.

Oh by the way, I forgot to mention that I made this bag because I admired Futuregirl’s bags so much. Before I did this bag, I think her price is in the expensive side, but after made it myself, I think her price is cheap :)

Your bag looks great!

Single crochet *can* be boring, but I usually make my bags in stolen moments waiting for movies to start or waiting for water to boil, so I don't have enough time to loose interest. :)

I think that once I publish my patterns and people try them for themselves, they will realize, like you did, that there is a *ton* of work that goes into them. I've raised my prices a little since I started, but not as much as I'd like to for how long they take me. The only problem is that the only people who really appreciate the time and talent they take to make are people who could make their own. :)

You're so patient with details, Lily, your bag is lovely! The tutorial of futuregirl is a very good one.
I saw some similar bag patterns on a japanese site that I'm inspired to do upon seeing your bag.

I do think your bag is very pretty. I'm also a big fan of the Futuregirl's bags

A very nice bag, with a linning (thats the difficult part of all)

I love Futuregirl's tutorials too, never fail to inspire me to have more bags.......
