Carolyn Forster also calls this her ‘Dick Whittington’ bag and you can see why and it has a simple construction from just one rectangle of fabric.
A simple, fold-away bag
This simple bag folds up easily to store away in a pocket or handbag or purse; just unfold it, knot the handles together and your bag is ready to go.
Carolyn has based the bag on a typical Japanese design which she has tweaked to help you sew it quickly and easily.
You can make it as complex (with a lining and top stitching) or as simple as you like – just one layer – no separate handles to worry about either.
