Brown for the base rounds, and a fall colors variegated for the "leaves",(have a limited amount of the variegated and it's discontinued). Extra tails to be tucked,UGH. When it gets to be about 15" tall I will band off the top, add handles and a strap and button closure, then make a rectangular bottom to attach the bag to. Add lining in canvas duck so that it can be a shopping bag without distorting the "leaves". Voila! A fall purse/shopping bag in King size. I am also working on a pattern for an xmas one with holly leaves and bobble/ popcorn berries, i can't decide which yet. Might make a nice gift bag, hmmmm, now I am thinking a round bottom for a wine bottle gift bag and a top that has a drawstring, and maybe use this stitch in a fuzzy mohair to make angel wings for a tree topper. Oh I just don't have enough hands to do all the things I want!!
oh my! The possibilities are endless
