Named for the use of the lemon peel stitch, this bag is a fun project to make for any season! This design would be a great introduction to working with colour changes and seams. The handle is easily adjustable and can be styled to your preference with either a crochet strap or a cute store bought one. The finished bag measures approximately 9 inches x 7 inches.

Inside the pattern you will find:

  • Detailed written instructions
