A 2011 Christmas present, finally finished.
The T-rex intarsia is a free chart by Ivy Kim, to commemorate Dinosaur Comics. The blue base yarn is my handspun aran-weight merino dyed by Yarn Chef in “Little Islands”, the most gorgeous saturated blue and the third skein I ever spun; the neon green is slightly thinner handspun superwash merino dyed by Crazy Monkey Creations.
I lined the bag with a fat quarter of “Really Old Cameos” by sammyk, from Spoonflower. Spoonflower is a very dangerous place, by the way. I fused the top, front, back and bottom lining to some scrap Timtex leftover from a quilting class to give the bag some structure – leaving the sides soft for some squishability. The handle is extra-wide double fold bias tape.
Rough pattern details after the fold.
