Pattern Details

Note: An internal wire frame "Style C" is required to create the unique curved shape in this project. You can get this frame at The Castell Day Bag is a unique bag with a beautiful, curvy shaped top. With wire frames around the opening, it opens wide to make this the perfect bag to haul all of your much needed supplies for the day. This bag functions like a carpet bag, but uses smaller, more affordable wire frames that are found in our shop. You can make the bag without the wire frames, but it will have a square top instead of a curved/domed bag top. There are 2 gathered pockets inside, perfect for holding personal items. This curvy girl holds a lot of stuff and looks good.
