Meet your new favorite bag! This bargello masterpiece is sure to put some pep in your step -- loaded with vintage style yet still thoroughly contemporary, the Big Love Bag is the perfect size to serve as a small tote or large purse. We love it with a simple summer dress and clogs, but it pairs equally well with a jean jacket or wool coat... or use it as the cutest project bag ever and keep it parked next to the sofa to corral your crafts in progress!
And though it's a visual showstopper, we promise this bag is infinitely manageable to make! Sure, it'll take some time to complete (think of it as hours of craft therapy while you binge your favorite shows), but the skills involved are not at all difficult. If you're looking for a project to really sink your teeth into, keeping your hands busy and your mind relaxed -- this is it!
This design holds the record as the largest kit we've released to date! It includes 38 skeins of tapestry wool in a stunning color palette, four sheets of plastic canvas, two genuine leather handles, a complete pack of needles, and a large-format pattern booklet -- all packaged in our large zipper project bag. (Plus free US shipping!)
The kit makes an unlined bag, but the pattern includes instructions for adding an optional sewn fabric lining with pockets if that's more your speed!
