Le sac de Marcel by Isabelle Kessedjian

Another great suprise from Isabelle Kessedjian, who is always where we did not expect her... Le Sac de Marcel! And Merry Christmas!

But what is "Le Sac de Marcel"?


"Le Sac de Marcel" is the latest crocheted bag to have popped up in "Boy-scout" Isabelle Kessedjian's effervescent brain!

Inspired by her scouting years when she was a child, in Mexico, Isabelle imagined this big shopping bag in single crochet (US) embellished by a red cross. This handy tote bag can be used to carry your shopping, your courses, a whole colony of Pious or even a small Gigi! It's lined with red gingham fabric.

Isabelle decided to offer this tutorial for any order of Max capdebarthes' 50 cm leather bag handles, that were used on Isabelle's bag. Yet, for knitters all around the world who wouldn't wish to place a order in France (though the shipping feesare limited), we decided to sell the pattern in English as a Ravelry download.

To make "Le sac de Marcel"...
