I designed Apple Tote while I was walking around my favourite yarn store. I often let the yarn inspired me. Do you ever has experienced when the yarn just stopped you and asked you to make something out of it? It was fall and apple picking season and how appropriate is the color of the yarn also called 'Apple'?
I also made the Apple Tote for charity.
I took my 'Apple' color yarn and make it into a roomy and versatile tote bag.

1 set of US #10.5/6.50 mm dpn
A 24" long US #13/9.00 mm circular needle
Note: Substitue this yarn with any bulky yarn will produce the same effect. As always, the finished measurement is for reference only. The actual measurement depending on the lenght of the felting process. I would also recommend lining the purse to increase the durability.
