Mandala Crochet Motif Tote Bag
"This spectacular mandala motif is transformed into a simple tote bag with the addition of perfectly placed tabs along the sides and bottom of the two motifs. The textured strap is worked right into the side of the bag. Optional lining instructions are included, too. This motif would also make an exquisite joined motif afghan.
