The Lotus Bucket Bag was originally offered as a physical workshop in Singapore. I am pleased to share that it is now available as a pattern!
This is a timeless bag style and remains a staple in most baglovers' collection. The bag is a great size and will fit more than just the bare essentials. It features two roomy slip pockets and one zipper pocket on the inside. It has no pockets on the outside.
