Sophia Crochet Tote ~ Make-along Kit

price: $218.00

Welcome to the Spring 2022 Make-along! Our make-alongs are a wonderful way to learn and grow in new ways. We accomplish that through learning knitting and crochet skills, accountability (to stick to your making goal!), round the clock support and connection with other like-minded makers. So we hope you'll consider joining in! 

Watch the videos below to learn what sets them apart!

About the 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!
