Drawstring Tatting Bag, for a friend.
I used the pattern from the book: Contemporary Art of Knotting with a Shuttle by Rhoda L. Auld.
Not knowing, I added an extra ring of the 2nd round, making the base larger. Awesome! What a nice surprise that this 'error' would make it 'WOW'. The bag has about a 7 inch opening. I made one last year. Just the perfect size to carry my tatting supplies. I use a small size contact case, much like what you would use for glasses, only smaller. In it I add: shuttle, one to tat with and another that has a crochet hook on it and pair small pair of scissors. In the bag even a small bottle of Fray Check or clear finger nail polish and a ball of size 20 thread. I find no need to line it, but I am sure it would be even pettier if one did.
