The Claire Bag was inspired by the need for a small bag to store essentials on an evenings out and a fervent love of Bobbles. A quick project with an abundance of texture, the Moss Stitch creates a flexible fabric for the body of the bag while a band of Bobbles around the top edge add a sense of drama and flair. The purse is crocheted in the round with only one seam along the bottom. The handles are crocheted separately and then sewn on before adding a fabric liner.
