Fishing bags...

Went fishing this weekend and made these bags

out of Dazzle Twine I picked up at Lowe's.
Didn't use a pattern just winged it....
The blue bag I started like a motif and
went around and around with a chain 5.
The Yellow bag I made a chain of about
28 stitches sc down the 28 stitches and
around the other side of chain. Then chain 3,
sc, ch 3 around the foundation chain, I increased
to chain 4 sc chain 4 and then chain 5 and back
to chain 4 again at the top...put on handles
and you are ready to go......
They are great for carrying empty cans and bottles.
