The Quick Little Tunisian Bag was created because I designed a Quick Little (crochet) Bag a few years ago and it is still super popular. I thought Tunisian crocheters deserved a fun and fabulous quick little bag as well. The way the colors work in this design makes me happy. Unlike the original, this bag is finished off with a button and some tassels. Happy stitching!

I’ve also designed a Quick Little Knit Bag to be part of this set.
