This warm weather has recommitted me to some Alabama Chanin projects. I am trying out different designs on squares of canvas which will be sewn into totes. I would like them to grow into very luxurious totes with linings and key fobs, interior pockets, and maybe one of those exterior wallets for change. I like to keep my tools in little bowls. Last winter I lined this one with wool felt. I can stick my needles into the felt and the scissors don't clang around inside. It's a sweet little bowl and I think that suddenly becoming useful has really perked him up.
