A bag for my boy…

I have been promising my youngest son that I will make a bag for his inhalers for about a year. The paper prescription bag they came in has worn so thin there are holes developing so I decided it was time to fulfil my promise.

This little bag is plaited from rush. It is started with a check weave and then folded in half diagonally. The sides are plaited one row at a time. It really helps to make sure the check weave is as square as possible to begin with . When the sides reached the required height I did a level folded border and plaited a 3 strand handle secured with string bindings. Fingers crossed he likes it!
