Bonnie and Clyde Bag
This is a fun multi-purpose bag that is comfortable to wear and easy to use. The felted strap laces through the top and cinches closed when the bag is picked up. Straps can be worn like a backpack or held together over one shoulder.
This has a sturdy felted bottom and straps for stability that flow seamlessly into the upper portion of the bag. There is no seaming required. The top is finished with a lovely and simple picot edging.
Simple to knit and elegant to wear, this bag will become a favorite to bring with you everywhere you go. Great for the beach, a knitting project or an overnight stay.
