This medium sized shoulder bag is just the right size for holding your phone, wallet and keys. The simple fabric, created completely with single crochet, makes a classic background for the delicate flowers and leaves. These are sewn on separately after the bag is completed. Feel free to use your own imagination with the colours & placement of these appliques, to give this design a delightful personal twist. The bag is crocheted in continuous rounds, and the handles are crocheted in place as they are being made. So the only parts that need to be sewn on are the flowers and leaves.

Finished measurements:
22cm (8.6in) wide x 20cm (7.8in) high

Handles measure 42cm (16.5in) height when hanging from shoulder. Total handle length = 84cm (33in)

This pattern is easily adjustable to any size you’d like to make it.
