For lovers of Black & White…

I love this  little handbag, it’s just so cute & gorgeous – perfect for that special evening out.

Freeform crochet with just a touch of bling has been stitched & glued to an existing bag. 


The gusset has been worked in Tunisian crochet.


The inside is lined in black satin & has a small pocket.

The snap clip gives secure closure.

Size: 21.5cm(8 ½”) x 17.5cm (7”) x 7.5cm (3”)
