I like the ornery cat, chillin' in the background of the picture.
That bag was actually not the first crochet project bag I had made Erin. Originally, I made her a "bagsket" (using Foofangle's tutorial) It turned out to be a little small for Erin's purposes, since she's usually working from full skeins of yarn. This is the top view, with the drawstring top closed:
And with it open:
The fun thing about the bagsket is the nifty pockets all along the inside.
Smaller skeins of yarn fit better in this bagsket.
This was one of those hard lessons learned when using directional fabric. Yup, those flowers are upside down. DOH.
On one side, I got them right side up. The funny thing is, Erin claims she didn't even notice until I pointed it out to her. I should learn to just keep my big mouth shut.
As long as Erin keeps crocheting us awesome stuff, I'm happy to make her 18 more project bags and baskets!!!
