Because these bags are unstructured, they must be worn like garments that come alive on the body. The soft drape of each bag makes it relaxed enough to travel with you on any adventure, from the urban landscape, to a long anticipated evening out, to a spontaneous jaunt for a long weekend.
These bags are all very simple in their basic construction. Perfect for the beginning to experienced crocheter. The only challenge, besides not being scared of how huge the Weekend Adventure bag is before you felt it, is putting the zipper in well, The pattern, however, includes detailed instructions, so don't let the zipper closure scare you away. You will love wearing these bags!
