Easy and very useable Review by Lana Rosen

I have made several of these.bags, they are easy to make and very useable if you are trying to go green. I made mine out of a twine like yarn. The bag expands to accommodate the contents. Very easy pattern, and really quite pretty. I have received several complements on the bags.
