Cylinder Cosmetic Bag Crochet Pattern

With school letting out for Summer, 
and everyone  getting ready for vacations, 
cruises and such, 
I had the idea to come up with
 a little Cosmetic bag. 
It measures 8 inches across, is 6 inches deep, 
and about 16 inches around.
It is made of Cotton yarn,
 so it is completely washable.

Isn't this the cutest little bag?
Please add the Crochet pattern to your 
Ravelry Favorites

Ok So lets get started.
Bag measures approximately 16 X 8 X 6
Close up so you can see the 
texture created by the

Bag Assembly-
Line up one of the Side circles, right sides out and , right below the handle section. 
Attache circle using sc stitches, easing the circle around as you stitch around the bag. 
You will have about a 3 inch section of the circle that is not attached.  
Repeat on the other end of the bag.

Button Tab- 
Ch 9, leaving a 8 inch tail on both ends of the ch. Centering the tab on the top 
of the back of the bag, slip through and tie securely.  Line up Button on the front 
of the bag, with the button tie, and sew in place.

Oh and  the really cool thing, 
is that a skein of yarn fits
 perfectly inside this bag! 

So it would make a great 
little project bag!!
