Without knitting or sewing, create a durable tote bag using wool fibers, soapy water and your own muscles. Add a variety of surface embellishments for a one-of-a-kind accessory. This roomy tote carries everything from your knitting supplies to your tablet to books.
You can even make your bag reversible! A variety of handle options available for an additional fee, or you can provide your own handles. Additional embellishments also available for purchase.
Please note: this is a large project that requires some physical stamina (and
possibly some homework to finish).
