Sarah created this bag for our team and loved the pattern. She changed the colors and did more jewel tones as the main color, and added a leather handle at the top of the bag. 

She said this isn’t for a beginner. The videos are great to help you learn new techniques, but you do need more than basic crochet knowledge.
