This delightful small project sprang from Erika Knight’s practice of using up every scrap she can after she designs a collection. If you don’t want to wait for your own leftovers, this little tote is also a great entrelac warmup, and making the lining is a perfect way to upcycle a muslin shopping bag.

If you’re game for a little improvisation, neither full skeins nor all five colors are needed to complete this project. Have fun with it!
