Waste not Want not

That’s what my grandmother used to always say, and she saved everything. I had some left over cotton from making dishcloths so I decided to make this
This was really just a practice piece that I decided to do something with. A year or so ago I was at a second hand shop and bought this jar of buttons, bangles, etc. Inside were singles of different clip earrings. Perfect, I used them on this bag. There were a couple of tarnished rings so I tied them on with some ribbon. Everything can be removed when the need arises to wash the bag.
My friend Radian Lace assures me that a person can not have too many tote bags. My other friend Lizardknits inspired me to go with this technique of knitting the squares. She is making a beautiful blanket from leftover sock yarn
