Ryan used four colors of DesigningVashti Lotus yarn for this Fabric Fusion Tote. She said she was inspired by the colors and sheen of the yarn and how they coordinated with a flowery fun fabric.
Jennifer also wrote an accompanying how-to article about combining crochet and fabric in one project for the Spring 2015 issue of Crochet! Magazine.
