Corfu Bag Make Along event is hosted at Facebook  Outstanding Crochet and Friends group.

I added additional helpful videos to the ones you already have in the pattern file. Thanks to all Outstanding Crochet and Friends group members for inspiring extras!

This time around I decided that Make Along weekly pages will get updated as we go because everybody crochets at a different pace, so check out regularly!
