Pattern Description:

The Houndstooth Handbag is my Original Design! It is a very versatile bag as it can be made in any color combo and made for a variety of uses such as toting around your latest yarn projects or just the latest in your purse collection! Adorn with different accessories for varying looks.

The bags in the photos were made using Lily Sugar & Cream cotton yarn but acrylic will work as well (it will just stretch out more). The approximate yardage needed to complete this bag is 360 yds.

Finished Dimensions: 10.5"L X 7-1/2"W X 7"D

Note: This bag does NOT need to be lined.

This is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE pattern to date! It includes a lot of great information, techniques and photos and is SO customizable!

Bag design is an 'A Crocheted Simplicity' Original Design.
