I am taking part in the destash challenge/craftalong to try to cleanse my home of some of my stash. Also my goal for the year is to be more organized (who's isn't). I have also just been appointed to the Governance Council of an newly forming high school, which meant I needed a purse/bag to easily carry my note-taker, folders, and contact information to and from meetings and school visits. Thus this purse was born.



I crocheted the outside based off of the stitch pattern from this pattern http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/bobbling-along-aran-tote I didn't use the pattern though, so I can't vouch for its accuracy at all. I crocheted this while on acar trip with my family.



The inside took me quite awhile as I was very indecisive about pockets and trying to utilize my fabric scraps as optimally as possible.
I have one large pocket on either side one for my note-taker and one for my folders with information, contacts, etc... in. There are clips and rings along the top for my keys, sunglasses, lip chap, etc...
In hindsight I do wish I would have made the top band with the snap a touch higher, it would have been slightly easier for sewing, but over all I'm very very pleased with it. The dimensions are 15x12x4" without the straps. I made it out of scrap Heather Grey Red Heart Super Saver Acrylic Yarn. The fabric was from JoAnns that I had scraps of from other projects, all of the notions I had at home from leftovers from projects.

Any other questions/comments feel free to ask. Thanks!

This is absolutely gorgeous! Your crochet design is fabulous. The color and the lining is so perfect, like it's something you would order from a high end store. I love this, pinning!
