I made this blue, red and yellow cotton bag out of cotton from Morris and Sons yarn from the Sydney shop of the same name before I went to Auckland. I used a pattern for the squares from the book I used to make my multicoloured blanket of squares, Jan Eaton’s “200 Crochet Blocks”. From memory, as I do not have the book with me in New Zealand, the pattern was called “Solid Square”. After making eight squares, I joined them and then made a strap, and I lined the bag with poplin in a red and white small polka dot pattern. I put a huge red button on the bag as an enclosure. I enjoyed using this cotton as it has really bright, vivid colours and it is of good quality. I think this bag is a lot of fun, and it was equally good fun to make!
