A Productive Day of Crocheting!

I got out by the pool early this morning with all my necessary supplies and tools. I was determined to complete this Summer Checkers Tote project that I have been working on for nearly 3 1/2 weeks now!  I’ve had a love/hate relationship with the project, and I’m so happy to finally be done.  I can’t wait to give it to my customer tomorrow!

This bag is a version of the Summer Checkers tote that I made a couple of months ago, but I wanted to try something a little different.  I crocheted the 4 different sides separately and crocheted an inner lining making it one single piece to add strength to the tote.  I also sc the inner lining so that my customer wouldn’t have to worry about anything falling out!  That definitely took some time.  I then used plastic canvas and cut it according to the right dimensions and then just put everything together.  I don’t plan on publishing this pattern because I didn’t write it out and probably won’t make it again (I’m sure you can understand).  I don’t think I could ever get paid what I would really deserve, although I did learn a few things and think I may could make it a little quicker the next time.  Well, here are the pictures!  Enjoy
