R2-R62. SC in each stitch until the end. CH 1 and Turn. (7SC)

Fasten off and leave a long tail about 3 feet for sewing.



Now to sew the sideband your stitch markers will come in handy. First attached it using your stitch markers and use the long tail you've left in your band to sew the band to the body of the bag. There are many ways to attach the band, it's either you can Single Crochet them together with the body of the bag or you can whip stitch it. You can use anything you like.

 After everything is attached, it's optional but highly recommended to Crab Stitch the sides of your bag including the sides of the cover. 


Then attach a golden chain, the length would depend upon your liking, on the sides of your bag. I recommend on the  3rd row from the end of your sideband. 

I was looking for some gold rings also to attach to my bag before the chains, but I could not find one here so I just attach the chains directly to my bag and it worked out just fine. If you have a better way to attach this chains on your bag then do it. I don't really have many resources here.


I am actually happy how it turned out. I love this bag, it's small and cute. My niece is already eyeing to use this one. Adults can use it also.
Hope you enjoy making this project and don't forget to Tag me on Instagram and Twitter with your finished project and also like my Page in Facebook, Si Nanay Madel. I would love to see what you've done and Pin it also on Pinterest.
