This bag is a blast to make-and when it’s finished, it will hold your electronic reader, notebook, crochet-in-progress, and more! Inspired by bohemian colors and fabrics, the bag features a medley of traditional stitches, tapestry crochet, and surface chain embroideries, embellished with a glitter thread.
