I LOVE this Ombré bag! I needed a large sturdy bag to carry supplies, so I whipped up this bag. I LOVE it so much that I decided to share it with you. The bag is made using 2 strands of yarn throughout, and the final dimensions are approximately 13” H x 13” W x 5.5” D with straps long enough to wear over the shoulder. The Super Saver Ombré yarn gives it a nice finished look, but the bag is also plain enough to dress up with additional embellishments.
