The bag is knit in one piece and then folded in half at the bottom and seamed at the sides. The finished bag is approx. 3" wide and 4" in height.
Although I designed this one for Easter, with a little imagination you could knit one for any holiday ... or just because.
Two balls of worsted weight yarn. The bag in the photo was knit with Jelli Beenz. (The bag takes far less than one ball of yarn, but it is knit holding two strands together.)
Six Easter or spring-themed buttons. The buttons shown were purchased at JoAnn Fabrics.
Two beads large enough to thread on the yarn.
Straight needles size US 8.
Tapestry needle for seaming the sides of the bag.
To make the bag:
With two strands of yarn, cast on 14 stitches. You'll knit with two strands throughout the entire project.
