Vintage Suitcase Turned into Crochet Bag

 I wanted to have a tote to carry around my
current crochet projects, 
so I took this vintage vinyl bag 
and did a makeover!

 One side has a pocket and the other a zippered pocket, 
perfect for holding hooks and a scissors.
First I did the pocket side, punching holes along the top edge.

 I then did a blanket stitch,

 And then did a crochet edging,
which I ended up redoing in white and yellow
to make it more substantial.
 

 Then I glued some pretty fabric to the bottom half
on both sides.

 And on the zippered side I glued a strip of pom pom trim.

I love how it turned out,
it makes crocheting even more fun!
Bye for now!
