"Marvelous" Felted Mini Tote Bag

Marvie had done a similar one some time ago and, of course, didn't write up the pattern. I decided to give it a try and even wrote out the pattern-perhaps a submission for the 2007 calendar. Anyway, it's named for Marvie!

I used the wool my secret sistah sent and probably should have doubled it up to make it firmer, but it's fine for toting around a crochet project, as long as it's small.

I am looking for testers, I did post a call on Crochetville, but of course, you guys can test too.

I used about 3.5 ounces of ww wool and a k hook.

It's not completely dry, so measurements weren't done. It's actually blocking on my head mannequin right now. I realized a few changes I should have made and rewrote the pattern.

Here's a few pics:

Looks great, Deneen! I love the colors - very nice and deep, but still cheerful.

(If I weren't right in the middle of trying to write up two patterns I'd be happy to test it with some country blue wool some wonderful person sent me. :)

Wow, nobody's ever named anything after me before *g*

Looks great! I'd offer to test it, but I'm fresh out of wool at the moment and no idea when I'll be getting any. I do love the colors you used!
