Halloween is my favorite time of year. I got married on Halloween and I am one of those nutcases that decorate my house more for Halloween than for Christmas. Halloweentime is also when the awesome fabrics come out, so I picked up some and made this skull and spiderweb tote:

There are two small pockets on the front too:

Problem was I could not figure out what to use it for until it dawned on me that I can use it to keep all my crocheting in it for my first afghan I am working on since the department store bag I was keeping it in was falling apart.

Everything fits in there perfectly and I took it to the Farmer's Market last night to work on the afghan while I sat at the booth and someone made the comment that it looks like one of those Loungefly bags that go for $60+
Thanks for looking!

Boldly going where others have probably been.

That is such a cool bag. I love the fabric. I got married on Halloween too since it is my favorite day of the year. I should say it was my favorite. I don't think I will be as fond of it since my husband has left me.

Awesome bag.  I love how the black and white look oh-so sophisticated, and then at second glance I saw the skulls.  Nice!  I've never seen a loungefly bag, but yours looks very well done.  Cheesy

This is great! I love the fabrics you used. My family also decorates more for Halloween than Christmas. We look forward to it all year. Again, great bag!!
