Round Granny Bag


If you would like to read my thoughts on bags go to the Bags, Bags, and More Bags post.


The granny stitch is well known and at times seen as old-fashioned. Despite that, I do like it. Making a bag seemed like a nice project to make, I do love bags after all. It makes a modern looking bag. The bag can be used for shopping, carrying bit and bobs, or anything else you like.
