Pattern for an oversized over-the-shoulder market/slouchy style or tote handbag with removable straps. Worked in the round, the body is seamless. The colorful Lotus Flower design of the body looks intricate, yet is easy to create. When made as indicated in the instructions, the bag is reversible.


  • 6 buttons for handle loops, handle
  • 1 button for body closure (optional)
  • 2 rectangular loops for handles
  • Reversible version requires 3 additional buttons

The entire bag can be worked without buttons, but doing so would require extra stitching or use of a commercially available bag handle.
