Ideal for Spring time and sunny days out. Constructed of a small size bag, with a zipper to open and close easily to keep our belongings safe. And long handles to carry over the shoulders.
Made with a variety of stitches, like split single crochet, to make the body of the bag and popcorn stitch, for the textured feel of the lid. With separate pieces to be worked in the round and back and forth, seamed together by the end.
