Assembling the Bag
This is where it can all go horribly wrong.
|24 hexagons and 4 new napkins (found in a charity ship for £2.59)|
On rounds 2, 3 and 4 I decreased by skipping 2 spaces at the joins - this has the effect of straightening out the bag and giving the top some shape.
|Decreasing at the join.|
|3 rounds done in each colour.|
I wasn't sure how I was going to do this - but this is what emerged! I crocheted another 6 flowers. Then sewed them to the bottom as shown in the pictures.
|All 6 new flowers sewn in to the bottom of the bag.|
|Gap left to fill.|
Round 2 and subsequent rounds - half-treble into each space - decrease at join as above - until space is closed up.
