The Unicorn Bag is perfect for kids. With a super cute hair flick that follows down the back of the bag, a magnetic closure, and an inside zipper pocket, it’s sure to delight all children who love unicorns.
It’s a cute bag that can be changed and customized to suit the person you are making it for. From glittery hair to patterned cork it’s really easy to make and looks really cute.
