Crochet is adorable pet themed tote and food mat with Rohn Strong! Originally designed by Karen Isal and Karen Barnes, this bag has cute bones along the flap and the pet mat uses a great repetitive stitch with paw applique in the corner.

Interested in donating your project? This project was designed for Operation Blankets of Love, an organization that is a one-of-a-kind animal welfare and emergency relief nonprofit organization. Each month, Operation Blankets of Love donates blankets, towels, pet beds, leashes, collars, food and other pet supplies to homeless animals in shelters, rescue groups and wildlife sanctuaries. The tote and food mat will be given to new pet parents when they adopt! See the end of the pattern for more information on donating!
