    Diamond Island Tote (challenging for me)

    I completed this tote a couple of days ago. It is the Diamond Island Tote by AuntiesTwo.
    It was quite challenging for me, but I really do like it. I used a Kaufman Cherry Balipop for the weaving strips.
    It is rather large and I plan to use it for my knitting projects in progress. The hardest part was attaching all the strips to the bottom of the purse. The weaving was fun and the clothes pins worked better than pins in lining up the strips correctly as I could reposition the strips easily. Hope you like it.

    That looks like it was a lot of precise work, but it came out great. Good job! Love your fabric and color selection. Great idea to use it for knitting works in progress. Thanks for sharing.

    very pretty bag. I was going to buy the pattern but i am a new quilter and it looked overwhelming to me...now i am convinced..i would rather buy the bag already made because i do not have the skills for that! you did a great job.
