The WR1935 Everyday Tote from Coats & Clark -- a free pattern.
Added the last stitch and wove the last end in last night. Started this before Ondoy hit Metro Manila. Was sewing the pockets into it when the water entered our house.
In the flurry of saving whatever we can, and preparing to flee to a safer place, I promptly forgot about this.
Then I saw New Moon during the weekend, and I remembered my abandoned project. This bag's colors and accents were inspired by the Twilight series. Although I don’t care much for its literary worth, I am amazed at all the things that the series inspired into being – shirts, bags, necklaces, bookmarks, dolls and all manner of teeny bopper accessories.
So last night, I added the last flourish – an apple-shapped button for closure. :) And it was done!
I love this bag – my first venture into tapestry crochet. It has a bottle pocket on the side, a back pocket, and a tiny coin purse that can hang either inside or outside.I added my favorite key chain -- one shaped like a diamond ring. I helped my mom host her friend's wedding anniversary last year, and the keychain was the lovely souvenir. :)
By the way, I don't care how many death threats from Twi-hards I receive... But I'm sorry, the movie was sooooooooo funny. :D I guess only Twilight fans can really enjoy the movie seriously... Although Taylor Lautner did look hot. Team Jacob, yay! Mrawr.
