This chic and roomy bag will comfortably hold all your belongings with ease. The outside pockets should provide easy access to essentials such as your keys and cell phone amongst other items.
The summer crochet bag will look equally as good at the beach or while you’re rocking it in the city. What I love most about this bag is the interesting design of the straps on it.
Schachenmayr Journey Yarn
I’m pretty sure you haven’t tried the Schachenmayr Journey yarn before and I think you’re going to really like it. The Schachenmayr Journey yarn is a space-dyed tape yarn that comes in 15 different shades.
This type of space-dyed tape yarn is brilliant for summer crochet projects involving such items as garments, bags, purses and others. What you’re going to like most about the Schachenmayr Journey yarn is that it is machine washable. Now when was the last time you came across those two words while crocheting?
