Say goodbye to the frustration of yarn rolling onto the floor or slipping off your lap. Moreover, the Clutch Wristlet becomes a handy companion during unexpected delays, such as a lengthy checkout line. Instead of succumbing to impatience, seize the opportunity to pull out your project and transform idle minutes into productive crafting, sparing those around you from potential frustrations.

Single Tasking Day

Did you know February 22nd is Single Tasking Day? I know for many of us it's so hard to do one task at a time. We are constantly juggling many things at once, especially in our heads. This crochet project bag is meant to help you complete the one task you want to, and that's crochet. No juggling yarn. And it's extra helpful if you are a multitasker because you can crochet and go! If you are a cat lover, you might find the Cat Yarn Project Bag Pattern to be fun to crochet. Or try out some colorwork with the Crochet Arrow Project Bag Pattern.

Grommets

Fasten a grommet/eyelet into each of the three chain 1 spaces on round 21.

(Follow the directions on the back of the eyelet/grommet kit) 

Fasten extra-large grommets to the chain 2 spaces on round 29. 

Strap

I recommend repurposing an old belt or picking one up from a consignment store. Cut off the non-buckle end to the desired length. Slide through the extra-large grommets and buckle closed. 

Zipper

Starting from the opposite end of the strap, stitch the zipper to the inside of the bag with a sewing needle and thread. If there is extra space between the end of the zipper and strap, stitch closed with yarn.
