The Calypso handbag was inspired by those hot summers days when all you want to do is have an ice lolly and dive into a cool swimming pool!! It is a great size bag that is perfect for all manner of activities and is worked in a Zig zag slip stitch that makes the fabric thick and stretch resistant. The base is constructed with an envelope fold that adds extra strength and gives it a lovely shape. Being knitted flat and sewn up makes this a good project for all skill levels.
