Now, let’s talk about what sets our lemon wedge bag apart from the rest – the choice of material. Say goodbye to traditional yarn and hello to fabric yarn, the secret ingredient that gives our bag its softness and durability.

Fabric Yarn

Made from polyester fiber,  this category 5 weight yarn is not only a great choice but also a versatile one. It allows us to create our own bag that’s as sturdy as it is stylish, with a texture that’s soft to the touch and a color that’s as vibrant as freshly squeezed lemonade. The fabric yarn is super soft, stretchy , has a smooth glide to it and won’t fade or shrink after washing.

But it’s not just about looking good – it’s about feeling good too. With fabric yarn, you can carry your essentials in your bag without worrying about pilling or stretching. So go ahead, squeeze the day and make a statement with our crochet lemon wedge bag.
