Pattern Description from Stitch ‘n Bitch: “I posted a picture of the first bag I knitted on my girly-style blog called primp! (www.primp.blogspot.com). A reader admired it and requested one for herself. Her only requirements were that it be dark blue and big enough to hold her 12” x12” sketchbook. I named the bag after her nickname on the blog, Zeeby, and this is how it’s made.”
