I will be making a simple rectangle for the bottom now, using a combination of the Twig and Mushroom. Still using the mesh stitch but possibly switching to three chain mesh to cover territory faster. The question now is will I have enough of the Twig left in the balls to make the 20x12 inch rectangle and the rest of the stripes in the Loops strip or will I have to cannibalize the Mobius strip?
I will also be using the Mushroom for the joining of the strips into panels and the panels to the bottom and probably for the strap. I don't have a plan for the strap yet.

Stacked as they will be with mesh on bottom, single crochet in middle and fillet on top
