Sophia Tote Pattern
Picture it Sicily 1922. . . Named after and inspired by Golden Girl Sophia Petrillo (aka Estelle Getty). She was quoted as saying “older women are forced to shed so many possessions in their later years that everything they own ends up in their purses.“ Nobody puts down their life very easily.” Now you can carry your life and yarn around with you from room to room too, with the Sophia Crochet Tote Bag. Happy Hooking!
