For you or four your kid! Practice tapestry crochet making color blocks to form the main bag (perfect for using leftover yarn). Then, decide on making a colorful drawstring bag or go all the way to create an easter bunny backpack. Drawstring bag handle is one size only. The bunny head will work as a lid to add the fun touch to the design. Backpack straps can be crocheted for 3-6 year old kids (little kid in the picture is 3 years old).

Intermediate: This design includes crochet basic stitches, a mid-level tapestry crochet pattern, easy shaping and finishing techniques.
