Easy to make Review by Lee

I am making this bag, and love that it is made in pieces that i can carry with me. The recommended yarn was unavailable in Australia, but I found another that works well, but not with the same vibrant colours. I can't wait to finish and use this bag.

Worked up well Review by Denise

I made this bag and LOVE it!!! I use it almost every day. The recommended yarn felted nice and tight. The pockets worked well. The handles pictured cost over $40 but the quality is outstanding. I've been wanting to make another one in different colors....
