Crocheted Rag Bag ♥ progress

I showed you these sheets that I'm ripping into strips about a week ago.

I took the time in between other crochet projects to
crochet this rag bag. To prepare it for the lining
I've pulled it over a quart canning jar to block it.

The pretty rayon ribbon beside the bag will border 
the top of the bag and will be also be the strap. 
I'm lining it with the blue floral sheet that the strips were ripped from.

This little bag along with my other crochet that I'm working
on will be put in my Etsy store. I'm working to get at least
a page full of stuff finished so my shop will look somewhat full.
I've waited this long so I can wait a bit longer. 
A lot of my stuff will be for the Fall and Winter seasons.

I'll post the bag again once it's finished.

Thanks so much for visiting with me.
Have a wonderful day!
