Crocheted and Knitted Lined Tote Bag

Today I am sharing this knit and crochet lined bag I just finished working on.
The base is knitted in brown, and the rest in crocheted in brown, denim twist and white. The body of the bag is 13 inches high and 14 inches wide.
The straps are nice and long (19 inches from edge of bag to center top) so it can be worn over the shoulder or across your body. 
The bag is lined with soft white denim, making it super sturdy, and there is an inside pocket for smaller items like keys or a cell.
The colours remind me of my favourite jeans, leather boots and a crisp white top -my favourite Fall outfit.
I am really happy with how it turned out. It is for sale if you are interested. 
Does your favourite outfit ever inspire your projects?

I am sharing this with...

  2. You did a great job on that! I have no idea how make anything like that. The lining makes it very usuable too. That would be a nice purse or tote in the cooler months.
