This is an easy craft for first time knitters . I used  3 1/2 mm needles. The whole bag is just your basic knit pearl pattern. You can choose how long or short to make it. Basically you just have to knit a square or rectangle for the bag part. After you have finished knitting the square or rectangle  you will fold the square or rectangle 2/3 of the way up. Then you sew the sides together. You will notice that you have a flap and this will be the flap of you bag. Then you will knit a long belt. This is also just your simple knit pearl pattern. This is what you use for the strap. Again you can knit this as thick or as thin as you want and the length is also completely up to you. You will than sew each end of the belt to sides of the bag. You will then need a button. to sew where you would like the flap to close. you will then knit a small string to loop over the button. this is just one knit and one pearl. And again the length will be what you feel is most suitable. Stitch this loop on the underside of the flap. This project can very in time. It depends on how quick and well you knit
