Making myself a new bag. :-) here's what I have so far.


19, May 2014 ETA:

it's finished!!! I love it! I kind of went my own way for the handles. I used the D rings instead of just sewing the straps onto the bag.

I started a blanket with that triangle look, 5 rows to a color, I got only a little way in when I messed up and couldn't figure out how to fix it :-/ I've never tried again

This is def the most I've done in chevron. It's a pain, but I like it so far. It's the filling in the "valleys"(that's what the pattern calls it) that is giving me trouble.

It was a paid pattern on raverly, but they have free ones.
