Crochet Pattern: Working Girl Shoulder Bag

By Rachel Choi – 6 Comments
This bag is designed for everyday wear and tear. The bottom is extra thick with a neat ridged texture to maintain the shape of the bag while still holding all the things a working girl needs. The front 2 pockets are convenient for cell phones, keys, coins, or anything else you don’t want to dig through a large purse to find. Feel free to line the interior of your finished purse for extra protection.
