I designed this bag for a friend who asked for a small bag that could be used to carry small items when traveling, something that could be thrown into a tote or suitcase. This bag is pretty, but practical and can be used as a cosmetic bag or purse depending on the materials used. It can be glitzed up if a metallic yarn in used. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY 1. Read a written pattern. 2. Crochet in the round SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 8-1/2" x 5" x 2-1/8"
