crocheted amulet bag

In the vein of my native american inspired crafts appreciation, I have been on a kick of making these little amulet bags to store special charms and lucky stuff around your neck. I researched a ton of patterns online but ended up kind of making it up as I went… I figured out this really simple way to make a chain, slip stitch back down it, then crochet down the backside and keep going to the front without turning the work… it it essentially becomes crocheting in the round.

The beads are really easy to add, it never occurred to me that all you have to do is string up all the beads before you start, then literally just pull each one flush with your work as you go along and it secures it a lot better than going back and sewing each one in would. The lace on the top is just two rows of double crochet shells. These are real fun to make a wear, and hide treasures in! I have a few listed on my etsy.
