Putting It All Together:
For the lens, rainbow, and black box: I used a hot glue gun. You can choose to sew these pieces, but I’ve found that this was the easiest thing to do and gave it a cleaner look.
For the 2 Pouch pieces: This is where it gets a little confusing. So, on the piece intended for the back, I used my G hook and got my skein of cream yarn and where it was cream, I just sc along the edges. After that, I put the side that has the lens on it and put it on top of the piece that you just crocheted along and I did a slip stitch along the cream to connect the two together. I really hope that made sense. then I did prettymuch the same thing twice on the sides of the brown. Flip it inside out, so now the side with the lens is facing outwards/visible.
For the strap: Using a yarn needle, sew it on the end inside of where the crease is on both ends.
I really hope this is understandable. Let me know if there’s something I need to fix or if you need clarification! (note: the picture of me wearing the purse looks off because it was taken in a mirror, so the image is flipped.)
