So, Jan ... did you choose the colors or did the yarn come in a kit? (I could never choose such clever colors.) And is this a bag that you sew together once both sides are done? The little hat I just did (which I still have to post a picture of) was hard to sew together after I felted, so I suppose there must be a better way than I used.

I chose the colors myself. Colors opposite each other on the color wheel tend to look good together. They don't have to be directly opposite, but you get the idea. The bag is linked in my sig btw.

I am going to mattress stitch the sides and bottom together before I felt it.

Yes it is. Except I changed the colors.

Thanks everyone! I have looked at this long enough I was beginning to wonder if I was on something when I chose the colors, but I do like them, too. I'm about 1/3 of the way through the other side now. NOTE: count your rows of each color on the first side so it's easier when you do the second. I didn't..well I started out doing it, but got sidetracked, and now I have to count and eyeball each row. Getting easier though now I"ve done a few color changes. LOL

I was looking at color wheels and found this generator that's kind of cool. You can pick one main color and then choose what type of color pattern you want. For this tote I used contrasting colors as it shows.
