This pattern was designed specifically for my daughter. I got some plarn in the mail, and she immediately snagged the pink, and told me that she needed a picnic purse made with it. So, I set out to make a small bag that she could carry her lunch in, but wouldn't be too big for her tiny little body to lug around. I used plarn to make this bag, but worsted weight yarn, or cotton could be used to make it, just be sure to check for gauge.
