The “ch 3” at the beginning of rounds 2-7 do not count as the “first dc” of that round. “Sl st in first dc” means sl st into the first actual dc stitch of that round.

Work over any loose ends of jute as you go, as they can be difficult to weave in later.

ASSEMBLY


Take the two halves of the bag (with wrong sides facing inwards) and sew them together slightly over halfway closed.

Using jute cord, lash the D-rings to either side of the bag opening.

Place the button near the front top center of the opening of the bag and sew in place.

Using jute cord, make a chain or a braid that is long enough that, when it is sewn onto the back top center, can wrap around the button and hold purse closed.

Attach purse strap(s) to D-rings.

Add lining, if desired.
