The Handles :
Short Handle -With C2, ch 25, 1 dc in the 2nc ch from the hook,
and in each ch, turn
Sc in each dc, 3 dc in the end of the 1st dc,
then working down the
Opposite side of the dc row, 1 sc in each dc, tie off leaving
a 12 inch tail of yarn for sewing onto bag.
Long Handle – Ch 50, and repeat the instructions for the short handle.
Attach the 2 d rings to the end of the long handle by
folding the end of the handle over the rings and sew in place.
If you are not adding the lining sew each handle on the side
of the top of bag. Then Sew the Anchor Pocket on the front
of the back. Also sew on the anchor buttons as seen in photo below.
If you are making a bag lining, set these aside till needed.
We will attach them after the liner is in place.
Step 3 – The Lining
Lay the 2 bandanna out flat on a flat surface.
Lay the Bag on top of the bandannas.
Measure out 1 inch on all 4 sides of the bandanna, and cut them.
Lay the Sewn edge of the Bandanna on the 1st side zipper,
With the zipper facing up and sew in place.
I used a zig zag stitch so it would have a little stretch.
You can use a sewing machine or hand sew.
Place the other bandanna, on the other side of the zipper and sew it in place.
Then sew across the bottom of the zipper.
If the zipper is too long, cut off the end of the zipper.
Fold the 2 bandanna down, wrong side out.
Unzip the zipper before you sew it closed or
you won’t be able to get it open.
Flip to the right side.
Sew over the corners a couple of time to re-enforce them.
Your Lining should look like a pillow ready to be stuffed.
Ok, let’s slip it into our bag.
Slide the lining into the bag. Push the corners into place.
Line up the edge of the zipper with the first row of crochet.
I was going to use white to match my lining,
But I changed to red to match the top of my bag.
Make sure you test that your zipper can moved easily
And not get caught in the fabric, zipper or yarn.
Sew the Pocket in place on the center front of the bag.
Sew your handles in place.
Add your D rings as stated in the handles section.
Sew on your anchor buttons.
And that is it.
