A Crochet Bag for Holding your Tiny Treasures
This crochet medicine bag would be great for holding your crystals, gaming dice, or any small trinket you want to carry.

This little guy measures 4″ tall by 2-1/2″ wide, with a drawstring at the top, and a fold-over cover that the drawstring feeds through. There’s also a little loop in the back for attaching to a keyring or cord.

I used cotton worsted weight yarn, but any yarn will work as long as you use an appropriate hook size.
