DIY accessory

We found our new companion for cold days in the snow. This knitted handbag will carry your smartphone, wallet, keys and more cuddly and safe on the icy roads to any date. What we especially love about her? The snow-white yarn with the classic cable pattern and the round handles, which give the bag a retro look.
