Yes, at noon today, the arduous work of redesigning that Pendleton vest into a tote bag is complete - AND listed.  I have signed off on it.

     As you know, I found a VERY expensive Pendleton knitted golf vest last weekend at a price I could not refuse.  No, I didn't purchase it to wear it - so get that thought out of your brain immediately.  :)       
     But I wanted to show you a little time line in my creative process today in transforming a new knitted vest into a one of a kind tote bag - a TygerLily original with no pattern, just rulers and a little experience under my belt.

Realizing I'm copying my own pattern! HA! This is a larger version of my own favorite sweater remake that I carry every day.

Do I throw the rest of the vest away? Is that being wasteful? tee hee

A little TygerLily wooden dangle for fun....

Finished but for the hand stitching around the inside top.
Hopefully this looks like a visual tutorial with limited sub-titles.  It's almost finished - handwork is all that is left.  But this old dog is tired.  This one wore me to a frazzle.  But I accomplished something, and it's my own design.  

Until we meet again...............
