This is one of the first crochet patterns,
I have made and
given away a lot of these.
It is the perfect size for an Ipad as well,
Which I discovered after I bought an Ipad.
And I take my Ipad everywhere with me.
I decided to re-test the pattern
and re-release it.
It is the perfect tote to take
to the farmers market
or use as a project bag.
