With one strand eyelash yarn and size 8 needles, cast on 16 sts. Work in garter stitch (knit every row) for 56 rows, or until piece measures 8". Cut eyelash, leaving 6" tail for weaving in.
Join tape yarn and work flap as follows:
K2tog, knit across to last 2 sts, K2tog.
Continue to decrease 1 st at beg and end of ea row until 3 sts remain.
K3 tog, place remaining loop on crochet hook.
Button loop: With crochet hook, ch 7, sl st back into base of chain, fasten off and weave in ends.
Edging: Due to the furriness of the eyelash yarn, it will be easier to sew sides of bag together if you first work 1 row single crochet along both sides and bottom of piece just worked. Reattach tape yarn at side of piece below where flap begins and work one row single crochet loosely and evenly along first side, along cast on row, and along other side of piece until you reach beginning of flap on second side. Cut tape yarn, fasten off and weave in ends.
Assembly: Fold cast-on row of bag up to 1" below where flap decreases begin. With tapestry needle and length of tape yarn, whipstitch sides of bag tog, or alternatively, use crochet hook to slip stitch sides together. Weave in ends.
Chain strap: With crochet hook and tape yarn, attach yarn to one side of bag where flap folds over front. Ch 200, attach to other side of bag opposite beg of chain strap. Fasten off and secure ends.
Finishing: Fold flap over front of bag to find placement of button. Sew on button and fasten button loop over it.
