Is it crochet? Is it knitted? Maybe you are wondering, but it’s plastic canvas! Do you know it? It’s a kind of a plastic sheet with a perforated grid (google it, a picture is better than one thousand words) that you have to cover with wool diagonally stitches (as cross-stitch but only in one direction).

It’s very easy to work with, so if you like this bag… you have no excuse! You’ll find the patterns and full step by step tutorial (PDF file, instant download) in my Etsy shop.

This model is a classic one but the combinations are unlimited… I have one all made with raffia thread and I wear it a lot in summer.

Came on! Make your own! I love to see when my projects become yours so tag them with #berzeuse and #berzeuseprojects when you share them.
