I created this pattern one summer for toting things to the pool. I worked hard on it to get it just the way I wanted it. I considered selling the pattern, but then this was one of my first bag patterns and I didn't take the time to professionally write it according to standards. I wasn't confident it was flawless either. I've since edited it a bit to make it a little more clear. I love these colors and I'm a big fan of chevrons. My daughter has taken over this tote and carries around all manner of things. It's holding up well. I may make another. I hope you enjoy! Click 'read more' below to expand post and see instructions.

I wanted to make a classy hat display for my crocheted hats I plan to sell on Etsy, and figured one of those Styrofoam heads would do the trick. But I wanted to make it less...styrofoamy looking. I decided to google 'foam head ideas' (yes I did that) and came across a handy blog that got me started.
