|I chose a pattern from Jean Leinhauser's book, 101 Crochet Squares, and I started crocheting. I needed to make eight squares for the tote bag.|
|... and I came up with this pattern, which I like just as much, if not more, than the original.|
|I got out the sewing machine and made the lining for the bag. I included three pockets in the lining to ensure good places for small things, such as cell phones and keys.|
|My last step was to sew the lining into the bag.|
|Here is the finished bag.|
Question: What sorts of things do you like to make? What do you do when you don't have all of the material or ingredients needed to make the project as you originally intended?
