A Tote to Try Again

I'm going to make a tote!

Obviously I should make some more squares.  I'm trying out the Granny Square Market Bag from Totes & Bags.

I tried to make this pattern once before, but I just wasn't feeling the cotton yarn for these little squares.


Goodness knows why, because they were adorable.


For whatever reason, I just haven't tried out this pattern.  But I cleaned up some of my stash this weekend and decided to use up some yarn I actually liked and here we are.


Little pieces that will become blocks that will become panels that will become part of a bag.  I'm pretty excited about having a bag I made for myself, and I think this is going to look incredibly cheerful.


I'm using acrylic yarn, mostly Red Heart with some Vanna's Choice and some sort of Michaels knockoff of Red Heart.  Yes, there is a store brand knockoff of Red Heart for when the real thing is just too fancy and pricey and I buy it sometimes.   It's great for larger projects and the scraps are great for projects like this.


I've already crocheted all of the circles in the middle of the squares, and now I'm mixing up colors.  I'm using dark brown for my main color and I think this is going to be a great traveling toy bag/farmers market tote/storage bin type of bag.  I'm hoping to work on it a little bit more this weekend!  I think the overall look is going to be kind of like a kaleidoscope, and I can't wait to see this as a finished object.

One thought on “A Tote to Try Again”

    THE APOSTLES' TEACHINGThe early Christians believed the apostles' teaching. (Acts 2:42 They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles' teaching....) What was not the apostles' teaching? What was the apostles' teaching, what was their source?The apostles' teaching did not originate from the Pharisees creed books. They did not teach from the Sadducees statement of faith. The apostles did not use the catechisms of the Judaizers as the final authority or as a substitute for the Scriptures.The Scriptures were the source of the apostles' teaching and the words and writings of the apostles were also the Scriptures.Acts 17:2 And according to Paul's customs, he went to them, and for three Sabbaths reasoned with them from the Scriptures......Paul taught from the Scriptures, not from man-made creed books and catechisms.2 Peter 2:15-16 just as also our beloved brother Paul, according the the wisdom given him , wrote to you, 16 as also in all his letters, speaking in them of theses things, in which are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures.Peter included the apostles Paul's writing as being Scriptures.The apostles' teaching was from the Old Testament Scriptures and from their own words and letters which were in fact the New Testament Scriptures.The apostles did not teach from the creed books of the Pharisees. The did not use the catechisms of the Judaizers to instruct their brethren in faith and practice. They did not consult the Sadducees statement of faith, in order to teach others.The apostle John wrote the last Scripture in A.D. 95, it was the Revelation of Jesus Christ.A.D. 95 was the last recorded teaching by an apostle.If the contemporary creed books, catechisms, statements of faith, Bible commentaries, so-called new revelation of modern-day apostles, and other extra-Biblical sources are not the exact same teachings of the apostles of the Bible, then, THEY ARE IN FACT, WRITTEN WORDS OF FALSE DOCTRINE.YOU INVITED TO FOLLOW MY BLOG.
