...or the tote bag from hell, which is how I referred to it while working on the design.
I have to admit though, despite my pain, it turned out quite nice.
This is my first collaborative design effort. Bri worked up the concept drawing(s), which were subsequently sent off to Interweave.
Upon their acceptance of our design, we bought tons of this stuff and I got started on the crochet portion of the program, which included lots of acts of frogging, I might add, mostly due to the material I believe. What can I say? I like yarn folks. Alternative fibers are cool, but if you want to know the truth, I can take 'em or leave 'em.
At any rate, I think it looks perty in all of it's plastic-y ribbon-y glory.
Here's a detail shot of the apple pocket:
This lovely tote pattern will be available on your local bookseller's shelves sometime in '07. I'll update you when I have more info.
Please note that the Dem Bones Scarf Pattern is now available on my sidebar for purchase! Thanks for your patience!
I'm pattern-testing Turkeyzilla The Tote Bag right now. That pattern will be available in the next couple of weeks.
Have a great weekend everyone! Toodles!
