Repeat round 7 until piece measures 10cm.
Work as for base from ***to***
Repeat round 7 until piece measures 5.5cm, then continue as follows:
Next round: 1ch, 91dc into each of next 2dc, 2dc into next dc) 14 times, ss to 1st ch made. [56sts]
Next round: 1ch, 1dc into each dc to end, ss to 1st ch made.
6ch, ss to 1st dc in round, turn.
Work 10dc into loop, join to lid with ss.
Darn ends in.
Fit lid over openning of base with a 1.5cm overlap. Find the point opposite to the loop and stitch the lid to the base working 3cm of stitching either side of centre back point.
Sew a button of your choice to the base where the loop lies.
Happy crafting everyone,
