We're not in canvas any more

In San Diego, a few ladies asked me about Crochet Today "tote bags". I had never thought about printing on bags and had only scant understanding of the tote concept, so I sent them away with a flea in their ear. But given a morning of tinkering, I came up with something suitable for the lady about town. I'm the new Lulu Guinness! Without the money, the class, or (let's be honest) the lady chromosome. OY OY!

I would proudly store my female nicks and nacks in this fine carrying case.

I would buy one for my crocheting girlfriend and then wish I were a girl so I could use it.

My girlfriend smiled at the t-shirt design, but this is something I could see her walking around with after I buy it for her. While she wears her Irish Panda t-shirt.

I'll definitely get one - and then I'll have to take up crocheting, because I think everyone will ask me about it and I'll be to embarrassed to say that it's full of camera gear.

I'd love one too! The design is delightful (great colours!) and I need a new 'teaching' bag. I can conveniently store my whiteboard markers and spare red pens (red is the colour of learning!), while at the same time encouraging the next generation of uni students to study 'craft' as well as the high fallutin' stuff I teach 'em.

This is a good design. I am a man who does not crochet and I am seriously considering buying that.

Stephen said...

I do like the design and the garment itself, but it is not something I personally would purchase.

I'm too crotchety to crochet.

Well Stephen, this isn't really designed for a man's ways.

An inspirational design on a practical tote - I may have to take up crochet.

On another note, I think I've found the real life Margo Plodz:
