This bag is just so fun, retro and chic! Perfect hand bag with a cross body chevron strap.

With just a small section of tapestry crochet worked in just 2 colors, this would make a great introduction to this fabulous color technique!

Full color graph is provided for the tapestry crochet section of the bag as well.

At approximately 8” tall (excluding strap) x 13” wide, this bag is the perfect everyday go-to size. Line and add a zipper, if desired.

Optional d-rings are crocheted directly to the bag for ease of construction and then strap is sewn to d-rings at the end.

Strap is a retro chevron design to mimic the diamond design element of the bag. As written, strap is approximately 37” long once sewn to bag allowing the bag to be worn cross-body. However, instructions are provided to resize the strap as well.
