Not Just a Baby Bag in Crochet

(133C)
Difficulty: Easy

I have been asked many times to design a baby bag. Here, at long last is everything I would want myself in a baby bag: a large bag that is so great-looking and practical that any woman would want to carry it. Here's what I love about this bag: the colorful options (stripes, solid, or bi-color), roomy exterior pockets, customizable shoulder strap, a fold-over flap, and an optional zip closure. Also included: a cosmetic bag and a baby changing pad.

  • Budapest Leather Handle

    JUL Budapest Leather Handle

    (JUL-BLH-)

    Color:

    Made in the USA of 100% Genuine leather, this beautiful handle evokes the ambiance and romance of an exotic other world of old gardens, back streets, and market places full of strange and wonderful things. For such adventures one needs an amazing bag in which to carry exotic other-worldly treasures and, of course, roses, stolen, found, or spontaneously given by an alluring stranger.

    Budapest is 26" long by 1" wide with 2" diameter engraved stainless steel rings and 1" wide engraved stainless steel Conway buckles.

  • Lisbon Handle

    JUL Lisbon Leather Handle

    (JUL-LLH-)

    Color:

    Made in the USA using genuine leather, JUL's Cities series of handles is inspired by the personalities of different cities by altering the configuration of the handle and the hardware used.

    Lisbon is the sibling of Budapest. Where Budapest is ornamented and expressive, the Lisbon is elegant and refined, classically understated. Where the Budapest has floral motifs created with texture and contrast, Lisbon is clear of motif, deriving its charisma from form alone.

  • Magnetic Amazing Snap

    Amazing Snap, Magnetic

    (SAM18-)

    Metal Finishes:

    If you want a magnetic snap closure that makes a statement, this is the perfect snap. The pull knob on the snap will immediately become a focal point on the front of your bag, dressing up even the most unassuming bag with its high polish. I especially love this snap on bags with flaps: Anouk, and her upsized cousin Vianne show off the snap at bottom of their curvy flaps, all three of the Dinner Party Backstage bags wear it beautifully along with cabochon rivets and a great JUL handle. The Rather Huge Carpet bag is immediately dressed up with the snap knob on one side surrounded by large, luscious Camellias, and a small Camellia on the other side to cover the snap back.
