This Bag was definitely a labor of love

i was summoned for jury duty in Palm Beach , Fl
i wanted to create something useful and that would take up my time.
Taking along my trusty H crochet hook and 2 cones of Bernat Handicrafter cotton in the Sonoma Print colorway, i proceeded to learn this stitch.

The size of this one is 20” x 20” .
The size can be adjusted to your needs.

I’ve lined it with a brown latigo print microfiber, and have added a Burnt Orange Tassle, Orange and gold drawstring , and chains and rings for shoulder straps.

I’ve crocheted this bag using 2 strands of the Bernat Handicrafter yarn.
