Crochet Crafter's Tote Progress Report

The eight strips.  Bottom three for front panel completed.
Of five for back/top/flap panel the two on outer edges are finished.
The middle three not finished but one only needs 3/4 of final square.
The middle one needs 10 squares and the other one needs 7
There have been some major changes in the plan.  I've had to give up on the Mobius strip that was to form the bottom/sides/strap as we were unable to acquire the rest of the balls of Twig bamboo necessary to finishing.  I considered adding a wide stripe of Mushroom sandwiched between narrow stripes of the Twig but since I'd also discovered on Sunday that my time calculations for finishing the Mobius had been wrong--so wrong it doubled the estimated time for it--I decided to take the not finding the Twig as a sign I needed to give up the Mobius for this project.

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
