Seaside Tote.....

this is my version of

designed by Stephanie Gage
It is a brilliant little tote/bag to hook, I made this one for my mother-in-law :)

I held two yarns together to make the fabric - Patons Smoothie DK & Sullivans Crochet & Knitting Cotton and used 5mm hook, which made a great fabric for the bag.

I made a couple of small additions - the flap, I made the handles a little longer, I lined the bag and added a magnetic catch to the flap. Details of these are on my ravelry page :)

You can find the pattern on

Ravelry & on Stephanie's blog

Have a wonderful day!

You made an already great tote even more beautiful; I love your additions and the lining is great, certainly with the matching button!
