I have been wanting to make the bag pattern at Zooty Owl:http://zootyowlcards.blogspot.com/search/label/crochet%20bags.

I decided I needed a black bag to bring a change of shoes to the wedding I attended. The original pattern is called the shabby project bag and used leftover yarn and is very colorful. Other than that I mostly followed the pattern.

I also added a border on top of three rows of sc in the back loops only.

I made up my own flower pattern but I wouldn’t recommend it. I am sure there are better flowers out there.

I added a black button the middle of each flower for some continuity in the color pattern.

I love when I need something and can make it myself.
