then cast off. Work the second part of the bag same style.


Pin the two parts of the bag together, be careful with the stripes on the side.
Make a fast zipper bag on one side of the lining.

Here is the link for the tutorial:

On left side of the zipper bag insert the ribbon with the carabiner hook
Then pin the metal zipper on the upper edge and sew it, close the sides of the lining bag.
Push the lining bag in the knitting one and pin in on the upper edge.
Now sew on the lining.

 Mark 4 holes on each side of the leather handle and fix it with the flat rivets.

Between the rivets you can insert the rectangle metal ring. (it´s nice for pendants ).

Make a small bag for inside with a ring on the side, so you can connect it to the carabiner of the bag. --> Foto. (finished size: 13 x 18 cm)

If you are tired you may also use this bag as a cozy cushion. Put old T-Shirts in....
