I am so pleased with myself! I thought I couldnt do it, but after help from my friends and their links, I thought I would plunge and try to make one. I was most worried about damaging the cross stitched panel, but all went well. The "sit and knit" is a design by Barbara Ana and is the pocket of the tote. I made it small, but hope to try a large tote with a Christmas design from Lizzie Kate.
