This bag is loosely based on Deb Stoller's intarsia bag in the first book (second book?).  But I didn't add enough to the sides, so had to knit a side/bottom piece to make it a little wider.  And I did the straps on dp's instead of straights.  And I added webbing to the underside of the straps to make the straps unstretchable.  And I added a lining.  So, really, I guess the only thing I got from Deb's pattern is the gauge and general dimensions.  That's something.

My boyfriend Phineas did the chart design.  He's a handy guy to have around.

The bag is amazing! Intarsia scares me, yours looks great. And I love the lining you used.
