Interweave Crochet Summer 2018: Sailorly Tote
What a great summer beach bag!!That was my reaction after seeing the Sailorly Tote from the Summer 2018 issue of Interweave Crochet for the first time. This bag is begging for a trip to the beach, and despite the fact that I live over 1,000 miles from the nearest beach, I’m still excited to make it.
Oversized bags are a summer must-have, since they’re perfect for packing up for a last-minute adventure, but unfortunately, most end up looking bulky and plain. Luckily, the Sailorly Tote manages to be both roomy and functional without sacrificing style. A trendy leather adjustable strap and cute boho-esque tassels dress up this bag perfectly. From the beach to the mountains to everything in between, this bag is a summer essential.
