Skull and Crossbones Felted Tote

I'm working out this bag in my head.

It's a 12 stitch pattern, and the lady before did 11 repeats. I'm thinking 12 repeats for a 24x48 st bag, and to be able to start the bottom on DPNs, casting on 12 st and dividing as follows: 2, 4, 2, 4. Then follow the pattern for Knitty's French Market bag for the bottom until I get to 144 stitches.

I'm also debating on purling the corners to help it square better.

I'd like to get this sorted because an old friend wants me to make a felted bag for his wife with a different centerpiece. We'll see how I do on this one.
