After a row with 47 links, close with number 48.
Guide step 11
11.
Do not fold link number 48 in from the sides towards the middle lengthwise. Insert link number 48 into link number 47 as a long link and stick it around and back into link number 47. Use scissors or a knitting needle to help insert the links. Then complete the ring.

Each ring consists of 48 links and 6 rings are used in total.

Tie around a link to secure a piece of cotton yarn.

Sew the rings together. Do not sew into the paper at all but only into the folds. It is important that the rings are pushed together with a side where two layers are shown against a side where three layers are shown.

Sew the rings together from the outside.
Guide step 17

In the last ring, each part of a magnetic clasp is inserted into two links which are then plaited opposite each other. Alternatively, it is possible to sew in a zip after the bag is sewn together.
Guide step 18
18.
The base is made by squeezing the sides together. Sew from one side to the other and back again. It's a good idea to sew the same place twice to increase its strength.
Guide step 19
19.
Sew the corner by squeezing in one triangle whilst the last sewing is made like the others.
