I just finished making this today. I furiously finished up the handles in time to get a few photos before what was left of the window light was gone. This is one of those projects that I intend to only use my stash for, but ran out of something before I was quite finished and had to run to get some rainbow thread.
I was quite surpised at how much this bag will hold. I was taking some photos of it with different items in it and had to add quite a bit to get the items to show at the top.
I really like making cotton totes and bags with yarn and thread together. It really helps prevent your project from growing so much with use.
The bag is based upon a pattern I found online. Since I have a tendency not to follow patterns to the letter, partly due to gauge issues and partly due to wanting to try something different, my version is not the same as the one online. I meant to attach a link, but I cannot figure out how to get to it. My print out says Joann and mentions Lion Brand yarn, but I cannot find it at either site. I did a google search and found a couple blogs with broken links to what appears to be the pattern. If I figure out a way to link to it, I will add it.
