Allons-y is French for ‘let’s go’. It is also the catchphrase of the 10th Doctor on Doctor Who. Much like a certain blue Police Call Box, this little pouch is bigger on the inside.

It opens into a large, useful market bag that is great for toting to the beach or taking along while running errands. Allons-y is knit seamlessly from the bottom up.

When the pouch is not being used to contain the bag, it doubles as a hidden pocket inside the bag for keeping your phone, money, sonic screwdriver or bank cards safely out of sight.

The pouch measures 8 1/2 inches/ 21 1/2 centimetres wide and 7 inches/ 19 centimetres high when closed. The bag measures 19 inches/ 48 centimetres long ad 10 inches/ 25 centimetres wide when open, measured unstretched.
