You're totally my hero! LOL Love the bag!


Just as I's fan-bloomin'-tastic!

I'm going to make another but in thread this time. Care to join me, my dear?


Haha! Love the action shots. The bag is very cool- great colors.


LOL - Thanks, Julie!

Pink - I decided I really couldn't improve much on your handle placement - it really does cut down on the floppiness of the bag, don't you think?

Thread? Hmmmm...I might be in!

Kristen - I was finished at 10:30 this morning but had to wait 5 hours for my photographer to get home. LOL




It looks great. I really forgot the size until I saw it all put together.


Totally cool!


Looks fabulous and I love the pics! You look soooo happy with the bag!

Have fun at the B'day party. I have to say I really don't envy you lol!


Yours turned out awesome!


It turned out fantastic. I just love how perfectly the lining goes with the crochet.


The bag is gorgeous-- love the color, and the size is perfect! I applaud your patience in making all those squares, hee hee.


You are to cute for words! And your bag turned out wonderfully as well!

Happy Birthday Colin :)


Love the pictures! The lining is perfect for the bag. That must be some sewing machine to be able to sew through all those thicknesses.


Great job! Have fun boys.


Oooh it looks fantastic! This is one of the bags I have on my to do list but I hate hate HATE sewing, so we'll see. I love how the fabric came together, you did a great job.

Way to go! Do you have any other bags on the list? If so you should join my KAL - CAL that a friend and I started!

Go ahead and check it out!



I came back to tell you thanks for your mini tutorial about lining the bag. I think that is always the hardest part for me. I always make the inner bag too small. I will probably add a magnetic clasp to mine, just because I have one.

I like your strap idea. I have no idea how I am going to do my straps, either. I am thinking one strap that is thick at the base that gets thinner on the shoulder. I am always changing my mind, though.

I hope the birthday party was fun! You have two great kids!


Thanks, Wendy. :) It's true that the more I'm around OTHER people's kids, the better I like mine! LOL

I'm glad the semi-tutorial helped and I like your idea of the magnetic clasp. I'm thinking of doing a crocheted flap & button type of closure on mine. Then again, Doug wants to use it as a beach bag, so maybe I don't need one! LOL

Thanks, Marly - I'll definitely check out your -along!

April - I hate having to line something after all the knitting/crocheting is complete. I always think that when I'm done with the yarn, I should be done with the project!

Thanks, Cyndy. :)

Linda - I didn't know if my Ellure could handle it, but it zipped through it all with no problems. Whew!

Beezie - Those squares would make a lovely afghan but I REALLY don't have the patience to do THAT! LOL

Sara - The boys were VERY rambunctious during the first hour or so & I wasn't a happy camper. Luckily for all of us they settled down! LOL

Awwww...thanks, Jillian!

Shar - I was kinda surprised at the size myself!


That is a fabulous bag! Love the roominess of it too! I might just have to make myself one!

Have a great day everyone!


The bag looks great...the model looks a little wacky!! (just kidding!)


The bag turned out great! Looks fantastic. :o)


Absolutely fab-u-loso! I love the colors, the lining turned out great, its superb!

Yarn Thing

I just wanted to let you know that your bag inspired me so much that I am talking to my LYS about doing a class to make it!

I simply love the colors you chose!

You really did do a great job! Not to mention the lining tutorial was FANTASTIC!!!

I really wish you would join the Summer kal cal! Please check it out okay.



Great bag! The lining you chose really adds the perfect touch!
