To make it you'll need:
- 2 colors of size 10 thread- small amounts! I used some of my thrifted thread
- size 7 (1.65mm) steel crochet hook
- tapestry needle
- small amount of stuffing if you're going to sew it shut
Abbreviations: (American terminology used throughout)
With the first color
- ch= chain
- sc= single crochet stitch
- sl st= slip stitch
- st or sts= stitch or stitches
In the diagrams the Os are chains, the X are single crochets, and the dots are slip stitches.
Disk pattern- Make 2
Round 1: 6 sc in first ch, sl st to first sc to join
Round 2: ch 1 (does not count as first stitch) 2 sc in each st around, sl st to first sc in round to join (12 sts)
Break off thread leaving a 6 inch tail for sewing
Ch 50, sl st to join without twisting, sl st through all chains
With second color
Row 1: ch 1 (does not count as first stitch) sc in each stitch across (12 stitches)
Row 2-8: Repeat Row 1
Now with the long tails on the disks, sew them to the body of the bag, working around the circles.
If you're going to stuff it, stuff it now, then sew the top shut. Weave in all ends.
It stitches up fast, and it's so very tiny. It might be a good purse for a Barbie doll, or like mine, a charm on a key fob.
If you like tiny things, I really recommend the book Microcrafts. (Amazon.com affiliate link)- it's full of adorable tiny projects.
