What are you most proud of? How the shaping took effect. It was totally unintentional. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be patient with yourself. And use stitch markers.

Q&A with Umm Nasheed

joannadam10375896 asked:
At first glance I thought this was a felted piece. It does look sturdy and still has nice lines.
Umm Nasheed answered:
The recycled yarn was a brushed acrylic so it's a bit fuzzy. I was going for a nice strong purse/tote so the user would get a functional piece.
Christine A Bartow Hendrix asked:
I have been searching for a nice sturdy crochet bag. This is perfect!
Umm Nasheed answered:
Glad you like it!
Lenatoo asked:
Love this tote!
Umm Nasheed answered:
Thanks! I love it too. I was so bummed out that it was for someone else.
