Jema - Little Treasure Gift Bag

One of my facebook group members asked for a pattern for a knitted little special treasure gift bag. 
I made this in a pale aqua yarn with a shimmer that sadly does not show in the photo, and a lacy garter stitch. I think it is pretty - and perfect for a little treasure keepsake.   Hope you like it Jema.
