Little Sock Bag

Wow, thank you all for the response on the little bag I made. I have written up the pattern and have a couple testers for it. I will make changes as needed. If you crochet it up and find a mistake or a better way of wording it, please let me know.

Ch 1 and Sc up other side of flap again forming buttonhole where dc’s were made before. 2 sc in same st as beginning ch 1 and join with ss. Finish off.

Attach button in place and weave in all ends.

When tested by Sydneyknits on Ravelry, she made a crocheted button for her bag. Here is how she did that:

Crochet button:

Ch2, 8 sc in second ch, ss into 1st ch, then 16 sc into center hole. attach to piece.
Here is a photo of Sydney's bag:
She added a cute daisy on it.

After a few people posted to me that the bag was coming out larger than stated, I crocheted up another one. I agreed and re-did the base of the bag. I am sorry for any inconvenience this has caused.
