Named after our favourite fall family, the Gilmores, this messenger bag is crocheted using the corner to corner technique in a faded colour changing yarn. It is worked flat in two pieces; the large rectangle that makes up the bag itself, and the strap that is later attached to each side and also serves as the strap. Photos are included.
