Not Just a Baby Bag in Crochet

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.

  • Lisbon Handle

    JUL Lisbon Leather Handle



    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.
