Yes folks, it's the Crazy Crossword Bag!
Here's the side with the British-style crossword on it (lots of black squares, and a high percentage of unkeyed letters - white squares that are only in one word). Handles courtesy of Tall Poppy Crafts.

My next challenge is to write up the pattern for the bag - I'll let you know when it's ready!

Bells couldn't let her have all the fun!) - my first ever skein of Socks That Rock, Corvid colour - practically black, only it's also purple and green. Very very cool.
