I love designer purses. I also love crochet and making stuff myself. I wondered if I could crochet a bag that I would love to carry as much as I love the designer bags. With this bag, my answer is a resounding Yes!!
My Striped Crossbody Bag has two zippered pockets, and a flat bottom so that it won't bulge unattractively when you put items in it. It also holds a surprisingly large amount of stuff, despite it's rather small size.
I have included a tutorial-type pattern, including a lot of pictures, so that you will feel like you have a friend with you, helping you put it all together.
Not necessary for this project!
