Carry (your own) bag with flower power
100% cotton, crochet
So this is my own version of the previously posted carry (your own) bag. I tweaked the pattern a little to make it a bit shorter and fatter and also added a flower which I think lends a little cuteness to the bag. I basically made it shorter overall, extended the width near the base and reduced it around the top so the closure was a little more snug.
The flower came up a treat in the variegated cotton yarn I used. I also used a much finer yarn and way smaller hook than the previous bag. Sure it took a little longer, but I think it looks better and it also squishes down in a smaller bundle when not in use.
