Almost finished, (not yet)

I had originally made a strap for a tote, but after a days use I realized that it would stretch all the way to my knees so I had to undo the strap and make it into sling bag. My goodness, I can't believe how comfy my bag is. I made the strap wide and therefore I eliminated that sometimes annoying strap that digs into your shoulder and leaves a red mark when you are carrying books. I want to make a drawstring and a little button for the pocket. (After all this I realized I am not happy with a sling bag. It's not what I want, so I am frogging the strap and 1/4 of it to crochet 2 small handles then I hope I will be happy)

Needed a little color....

Went back to the yarn shop and bought the same yarn in olive, just one skien. Tucked everything into my knitting sack and hopped on the bus to school. I didn't forget my tiny helper "The Crochet Answer Book". While on the bus I added a little color to my bag. I think it looks nice. Now I have to figure out how I'm going to finish it. I wanted to make handles but I think it's too long now so maybe I will make a strap to create a sling bag. I bought some wooden purse handles. Like I know what to do with them? I will figure it out and try to search for some ideas.

New totebag for me!

I bought some nice yarn from Kulli Shae(Everything Store). I really love this yarn and its 50% wool. I started making a sack for me. I doubled the yarn and crocheting it with a k hook. It's coming along pretty well so far.
