I made my wonderful friend Candice a Toby Tote for her birthday, after she…um…subtly hinted that, you know, maybe she’d like one.
My original design called for red polka-dot handles, but I couldn’t resist using this charming yellow fabric instead after purchasing it last weekend.
The black and white liner, however, was a sure thing from the beginning. The fabric is very much her style, and I purchased it because I knew (hoped!) she’d really like it.
Candice is one of my only friends (if not my only friend) who’s into crafts, and she recently took a class to learn how to knit. She lives about an hour and a half away, otherwise I would have taken the class with her. In fact, I was sad that we weren’t able to learn how to knit together.
Perhaps I could drop a subtle hint that I’d, you know, maybe like a scarf for my birthday. I know it’s in May, and I know I live in Tampa, and I know it will probably be 100 degrees here by then, but still. Subtle hint vibes comin’ your way, Candice.
Happy birthday, my friend!
