Now that RB has opened her present (Happy Birthday, RB!) , I can show you what I made.
This cute purse/tote.
Pattern: Elisa's Nest Tote (Yup, it was like it was named after DD#1)
Yarn: 3 skeins Sugar 'n Cream cotton -- natural ombre.
In the pattern's picture, it's shown as being all stretched out, but it doesn't look that way in my finished product. It's supposed to stretch as things are put into it.
RB, let me know how it works for you!
