Mitred Stripes Tote
This fun tote, created by Ingrid Summers, originally appeared in the free online sample issue of Yarn magazine (heralding the beginning of Yarn magazine) back in 2005.
The instructions are for the knitting of the bag. The original washing machine-felting instructions are currently lost in the ether. However, we can tell you that as wet felting requires agitation and temperature shocks, start by placing your tote in your washing machine and run a short cycle with hot water and a cold water rinse. Repeat the cycle until your tote is felted to your satisfaction, then block the tote into shape and air dry (use a towel to remove any excess water).

Embellish issue 44 draws inspiration from Madagascar – Nothing is more evocative of Madagascar than a mother lemur with her baby clinging to her back.
We had so much to fit into Embellish issue 44 that the charts would not fit in at a readable size! – so we have the cross stitch project here for you in our free projects ☺.
