Blue Plarn Craft Bag

Do you remember the plarn that I spun and plied with blue yarn recently?  Well I used it to make this bag.  I followed this pattern to make the front and back squares. I made 2 of the afghan squares, stopping when the in between hdc sts equaled 20 sts. I then ch 15, and worked 14 st rows of sc for the length of a square x 3 (the rectangle). Next I sc the 3 pieces together, then sc 5, ch 40, sc around to the beginning of the other square, and repeated this. Then I sc for 3 rounds.  When it was finished, I sewed a lining for it and hand sewed it into the bag.  

I love my new craft bag.  The lining really helps keep my tools from getting lost or from poking through the stitches.  It measures 11" x 11" x 5".
