Cordial Shopping Bag Free Crochet Pattern and Yarn Review | Posh Pooch Designs

Cordial Shopping Bag 
Free Crochet Pattern and 
Cordial Red Heart Yarn Review

Have you seen this new yarn By Red Heart?
You can see it here:
It comes in all these fun Colors.

This Yarn is a very unique yarn. 
It is similar to craft cord, 
but is much softer and easier to work with.
It is a Sturdy yarn and keeps it's shape.
It is a great yarn for produce bags,
 but also can be used for pot hangers, 
dog collars, leashes, bracelets, 
rugs, belts, straps.
Anything you use craft cord for, 
you can use this yarn for.
Also perfect for any Macrame' projects.
OH, it is washer and dryer safe, too
