This tote is bigger on the inside, so it has plenty of room for your extraterrestrial paraphernalia. Worked flat in tapestry crochet, dots of color march up a neutral gray background; the bottom of the bag is worked from the center out in colorful concentric circles. A single shoulder strap allows for easy carrying, and a drawstring cinches the bag to keep your screwdriver from falling out.
