The bag rectangle is now ready. It is 21 x 27 inches, consists of 63 flowers and 48 interlocks. It took me 5 days to complete the entire block!
Next the side with 9 flowers is stitched together with single crochet stitches to compress it into 5 inches. Multiple petals are joined together with single crochet stitches to form the mouth of the bag.
|Flowers are bunched together to form the central edge|
The central edging is done on both sides consisting of 9 flowers each. The bag is then folded so that both the edgings form the mouth of the bag. The remaining open edges of the bag are then stitched in the same manner to create a wider opening of the bag.
