I've made many of these, but here's the latest. I wanted something for summer. Thanks Sandi for the yarn inspiration. It's Patons SWS in natural pink. I also added a cell phone pocket and a snap to keep it closed. Oh, the little bow is a purse charm from Cookie Lee Jewelry.
To make the pocket I just cast on about 25 stitches and knit every row to make a square. I felted it with the rest of the bag and whip-stitched it in with needle and thread.
