Free Pattern Friday: DIY Yarn Tote Bag

This isn't a knitting pattern, but it is knitting-related!  I mostly knit, these days, but over the years I've picked up a lot of other crafty skills:  embroidery, sewing, quilting, crochet, even scrapbooking.  Mostly they supplement or complement my knitting habits.

I've written before about how much I love project bags, and I'm always looking for new ones.  You can't beat good old tote bags, though, and Jennifer at The Craft Patch has a super cute pattern to decorate one.  It uses heat-transfer vinyl, though you could turn her pattern into a stencil and use paint.  I love how it incorporates embroidery, and even includes the dots to guide your embroidery.  Accurately-embroidered lines are so beautiful.  And the pompom trim!  Too cute.
