Sewing in the lining is completely optional. This will make a great tote or purse.
You will need 2 skeins of the Banana Berry yarn (but won't use all of the second skein), 1 skein each of the turqua and pale yellow. The sequin yarn that I used for the border and handle was bought at Michael's, but because my toddler son tore off the label, I have no clue what the brand is, even after Googling for hours to find it. The colors I used are suggestions. If you use other colors I'd love for you to upload a picture of it by using the projects button.
