How to Make a Simple Bag with Beads

The bag is made up of whole bunch of cross stitches. I used 4mm seed beads here. It would look much nicer with bicone crystal beads. If you make the body of the bag bigger and not closing the bottom nor adding the handle you'll have a ring.

Top color (green/silver lined transparent) - 24 4mm beads
Bottom color (purple/blue) - 35 4mm beads
Handle and decoration - tiny seed beads Charlotte Cut

Variation: I used size 11 seed beads to make the black and white bag. It turns out to be super cute. For the last step, instead of adding beads between the white beads to fill the gap I thread the fishing line through the white beads and tie the ends together to create a "gathered" effect.
