1. Elvina Tote Bag
Tote bags should be sturdy, and this one from Erangi is both sturdy and stylish. She came up with the modification of the block stitch that makes it even thicker. What’s more important, however, is the look. Cream yarn comes to life with contrasting dots and dashes, and the bag is finished with beautiful ready-made leather handles.
