“Le sac de Marcel” is the result of the common work I did with French artist and crochet addict Isabelle Kessedjian (http://web.stagram.com/n/kessedjian/)

This tote bag is exactly what Isabelle and I love, a straightforward design to make an everyday, casual bag you“ll use to go shopping.

Isabelle used the beautiful leather bag handles made in France by her friend Max Capdebathes.

She also used a quality French wool made by Fonty, in Creuse: Pole, a really soft blend of alpaca and wool.

The bag is lined with gingham fabric; the pattern includes the instruction to make the crochet bag and the sewn lining.

Please not that the English pattern can be bought alone on Ravelry (in English only) but you will receive it for free if you order a pair of Max’ s 50 cm bag handles here: http://www.purple-laines.com/accessories/max-capdebarthes...
(I ship worldwide for limited fees - it might be about 6.50€ for most countries for just a pair of handles)

Le modèle en français est offert sur http://www.purple-laines.com pour l’achat des anses de Max en 50 cm (le modèle en français, seul (sans anses) ne sera pas vendu, le but étant de promouvoir le travail artisanal de Max Capdebarthes.
