Made of recycled fibers, this fun bag features Celtic symbols and knotted eyelet lace. The handbag is large enough to hold today’s gadgets with a handy strap for hands-free mobility. It opens easily and quickly, and shuts with a secure I-Cord to tie for extra security. It features a sturdy Garter Stitch bottom for stability. Instructions are charted & written out, for knitter’s choice. This handbag is a favorite for those who resist the use of leather.
