The Ropey Tote is a fun, sturdy bag made from yarn, rope & webbing. The interesting colour transitions are achieved by working with two strands at once. Also included in the pattern are the instructions for the sweet little bluebell tassels and leaf embellishments.
Make your tote in bright shades of the rainbow, ombre tones, or more subtle colours - the choice is yours!
