My Favorite Team Bag

My Favorite Team Bag in Virginia Tech Colors
This was a custom etsy order, it turned out so cute, I wanted to post it. The order was for a big tote bag in Virginia Tech colors that would be very durable and washable. After thinking about the request, I decided that it called for just plain ole' Red Heart. I think it works best for these projects because it holds the shape so well and is quite durable. I also felt the "traditional" granny square works best for this project. But when using the traditional squares, the bag had to be lined!

I single crocheted the linking in the contrasting orange yarn, and crocheted it tightly, which made it very strong and durable. Worked like a charm.
Of course, I had to add the dangle to it, just for giggles!
Dangle with Tassel
I love adding these tasseled dangle. It's the Pi├Ęce de Resistance!

I think this was the bag that inspired me to start making crochet linings. Thanks for the idea!
