Pattern Description:

I was so excited! I was going to Europe for the Christmas Festivals! This is an event that happens all over Europe starting in November. The town squares are full of open stalls full of handmade and incredible gifts from every possible craft or skill imaginable. Now I needed a purse that I could use as a carry on, keep my electronic gadgets in, my money, e book, and use it as I was shopping to put the smaller items in and keep track of all my stuff. I really needed a multi purpose bag of the perfect sort that would do anything and go anywhere. Weather resistant and really tough but still look good. I did mine in brown fisherman's wool. This one is a jazzed up version. The idea is for this to become your ideal bag with lots of options to put on or leave off. Very simple to do and lasts years!
