My Little Tooth Fairy Bag (Correction)

I just realized that my terrible photos today make it hard to see what that little shiny thing It's actually a nickel I used to hopefully give everyone an idea of what size my bag was.

I used US Size 7 needles to knit the bag.
I used US Size 8 needles to do the bind off.

Cast on 30 stitches
*K1, slip 1 purlwise* repeat to end of row (Don't move the yarn front to back...just slip stitch and keep knitting)
Continue until piece is the desired length. (Mine was just under 4")

At this point you will separate the sides...each side will be on a separate needle.
You will work each side one at a time.

*P1, YO, P2tog* to end of row
Knit the row
Purl the row
Knit the row
Purl the row
Knit into the front and back of each stitch
Bind off and cut yarn leaving a tail

Then work other needle the same way.

Weave in your ends.
*Turn bag inside out (stockinette is on the inside)
Make an I-cord to the length you desire and thread it through the eyelets.
