Done in all Lion brand cottons and using one of the patterns in this leaflet...
All the patterns in this booklet are equally nice, and easy to follow.
I originally only meant to use this for running up to the grocery.. but find the colors make me feel happy..and have been using it for everyday pocketbook duties.
I did slightly widen the shoulder strap to increase weight carried comfort.. and also lengthened the strap to fit messenger bag style. Makes it a darn handy bag.
Yes.. that's a Ripple Blankie in there on an outing. ;)
