Wild Honey Bag

The simple honeycomb shape of this bag is accented by a little knitted bee and is accessorized with a metal chain handle. The bag has a frame constructed from plastic canvas and is lined to finish it off nicely. A zip closure ensures nothing will fall out when you’re buzzing around town.

Clever Fox and Wild Deer Headbands

The basic shape is simple and quick to knit, with colors being the main difference between each animal. The pattern is knitted flat and then seamed, and the headbands have a built-in lining so that the reverse of the colorwork is hidden and won’t get caught on little fingers.
