There are many ways you can lace up this bag. You need to make a 12” tie and then weave the tie through the eyelet row. I chose to create a crochet chain, but you could braid some yarn, use ribbon, create an iCord, the possibilities are endless.
Fill with decorative soap, a bag of potpourri, or a small gift.
