I crocheted this pretty bag in the round adding splashes of different colors throughout the main color of cherry red. I then outlined it with a pretty maroon, crocheting over a strong cord. Small tight stitching so nothing will fall out.
The handle is a crocheted cord and is very strong ( the cord may be a nylon/cotton blend, but I don't know for sure). I added a brass colored buckle as a closure. Not lined. It measures as follows: 11 inches long 16 inches wide 37 inches long x 1 inch wide Strap 4 inches long x 3 1/2 inches wide Front flap
