This pattern is a mini version of the Standalone Bag pattern. Perfect for small knitting projects such as hats and crafts, the size is about 9" x 11" when open, and 9" x 6" when closed. Or it can be used as a unique purse. Made out of lightweight cotton and silk, the bag opens up and stays open - kind of like a portable basket, but much lighter and portable. The tab for closure can be with a sew-on snap, magnetic snap, button or whatever you choose. The pattern pieces are printed on heavy paper to hold up for repeated use. Instructions are well illustrated and easy to read. The unique construction technique with little or no hand sewing is best for intermediate sewers.
