Charity Shopping Tote bag

If you've read my earlier posts you'll know that I like searching charity shops for supplies. I had already made a tote bag for when I go charity shopping, but that has since been repurposed as a knitting bag. This is a simple, oversized square-bottomed tote bag I made using leftover fabric from older projects - the only thing I bought for this was some Bondaweb for the applique. This was the first time I'd used a Bondaweb-type product, and I can definitely see myself using it again.

Somebody stop me . . .

I appear to be accruing what is commonly known in creative circles as a 'stash'.

The evidence:


This is more yarn from Kemps, only a month after the first lot.

I am using it though! Look!

  Space socks for Mr. Jelliebeans made in Regia Galaxy from the first lot - these are actually further along than this. I'm doing the toe decreases on the second sock now.

 The Patons Vintage I didn't know what to do with is well on it's way to becoming a Gail/Nightsongs shawl.
