Hello, hello!  I finally finished this toy bag from the book Nursery Knits by Zoe Mellor.  I started it in February or March as a first birthday gift for my nephew (which was March 23), but didn't finish it in time, then moved, so it kind of got lost in the shuffle until I went for a visit earlier this month (he lives in CA, I'm in RI).  I used the yarn called for in the pattern, Rowan Handknit Cotton.  This was my first "big" intarsia project (the elephant on the pocket).  I wish I would have had a chance to take more pictures, but I finished knitting it on the plane.  It's a drawstring bag, with I-cord ties at the top.  The only changes I made were I use a different color yarn for the I-cord than the pattern called for and I lined the pocket to keep the mess of my intarsia hidden and as a practical matter to help make sure there would be no snags of any of the stitches.  I didn't line the inside, though, because I wanted it to stretch to hold as much as possible.  My nephew (and my sister) loved it.  He dragged it around with him all afternoon and, as you can kind of tell in the picture, it now holds his favorite stuffed toys.  Smiley

Beautiful!  I've always loved this pattern and now I want to make it for my toddler!  Although he would probably put remotes, batteries and other "treasures" in there!  Great job!
