I Love this bag!!! It was originally made as an everything bag, but it's perfect for yarns and knitting projects! I'm so excited.I chose the pattern and fabrics & my Mom was kind enough to sew it together for me.(Thanks Mom!) The draw string at the top allows you to pull it shut and tie it on each side or you can just leave it open. Lots of complements on it already:) Its sorta hard to see in the pictures, but the theme of the fabric is Paris.
