This Quick Little Bag is just that, and it came about due to a lack of pockets! I was at a trade show and realized most of my outfits for the long weekend had no pockets. I had a big shoulder bag, but my phone and business cards kept getting lost in it. So I grabbed some Red Heart Unforgettable and a crochet hook and whipped up this bag. Problem solved! I made a new sample for the pattern that is a little thinner, longer, and has a flap. Enjoy!
