I designed Apple Tote while I was walking around my favourite yarn store. I often let the yarn inspired me. Do you ever has experienced when the yarn just stopped you and asked you to make something out of it? It was fall and apple picking season and how appropriate is the color of the yarn also called ‘Apple’?

I also made the Apple Tote for charity.

I took my ‘Apple’ color yarn and make it into a roomy and versatile tote bag.

MC Menuch Bulky 100% Wool; 110yd per 100g skein; color: Apple - 2 skeins
CC Menuch Bulky 100% Wool; 110yd per 100g skein; color: Chestnut - 1 skeins (for trim)

Finished Measurement:
Approximated Size before Felting: 18” W x 16” H x 5” D
Approximated Size after Felting: 15”W x 10” H x 4” D

1 set of US #10.5/6.50 mm dpn
A 24” long US #13/9.00 mm circular needle

Note: Substitue this yarn with any bulky yarn will produce the same effect. As always, the finished measurement is for reference only. The actual measurement depending on the lenght of the felting process. I would also recommend lining the purse to increase the durability.

Thanks for looking!
