Billy Thunder Tote:

This is a functional fun bag. It features beads on both sides.

It is made from two mandala type pieces worked in the round. The beading is added as you go. If you have never done beading, then that is ok. It may look hard, but it is quite easy the way I do it. Pictures are there to help.

The Tote has stiffening in the base and outer edges to help hold the shape.

It is not a lined bag as I have left it more of a market bag style look.

This bag has been tested by a fabulous group of people and some of their bags will be in the projects section (soon). They used varying yarns with success and some of these options are listed in the pattern.

Tension is important with this bag and measurements have been listed with stitch height to ensure success.
