Rejoin yarn to end of foundation chain at row 1 and work rows 21-23.
To make up the bag:
Line up the centre of the bottom strip with the centre of the bag side and pin together ( I found it easier to fix one side at a time, remember to have right sides facing when you do this which is the side with the raised front loop trebles) Starting from the centre out for eveness, Sl st the end of each of the bag bottom rows to every other bag side stitch. This creates the bubble effect. Repeat for the second side. Close the bag further with a couple of sl sts past the end point of the side piece. Turn right side out. I also added a row of htrs around the opening of the bag top. Your bag should be looking a little like this:
All thats left is to pop it in the wash to felt - I put mine in a pillow case and chucked it in with my usual washing at 60 degrees.
Lining is optional, I use mine unlined but added a magnetic snap to close.
Hope you enjoy making Lalique!
