  1. Hi - I've only made one, but I think these are pretty easy to make once you start.. I not a beginner, but not intermediate either but if I can do anyone can.. I was most confused by the fact that the bag is worked from (side to side) because when I started I had the idea that I was working from the handles part going down to the bottom of the bag, but when you look at the beginning of the pattern, just remember the handles are the LAST part of the pattern. Oh, and in my opinion it is better to line the bag before you put the handles on... There is a great tutorial for how to line the bag at this link,thanks to someone very generous with her wonderful knowledge... Soo good luck and have fun with your FBB..... http://crochetkel.blogspot.com/2006/10/sew-you-wanna-line-your-fat-bottom-bag.html
  2. Those look so warm and toasty.. I haven't tried socks yet, but maybe one day I'll get brave enough to do some... Yours are fantastic..

  9. Thanks Betty.. The handles are Soft, and don't hurt the arm when carrying the purse... Cheap way to solve a problem since I didn't have any handles. Thanks again, you kinda inspired me to keep going when you told me that I should join the FBB CAL...
  10. Thank you Elizabeth, I'm glad you like my idea, it was a CHEAP solution but it works... :hugThis was a fun project and CAL..
  11. So...... here's my FBB... I did something different for handles since I didn't have the plastic ones and didn't have the funds to purchase them. I created my own handles from strips cut from the same lining fabric and then sewed and stuffed them with fiberfill.. I also used a pin instead of a flower to decorate it..I got the handles a wee bit to long, but decided they looked okay for a first timer. and the lining
  12. I agree with you Debbi on the red, white, and blue being a gorgeous afghan.. I put the red/white/blue colors together in my SUB someplace, and said 'WOW' now this would make a beautiful blanket.. Also another color combination of pale mint green, medium torquoise and and off white/soft white color together is beautiful.. It would make a lovely baby afghan.. This has been a great learning experiment with color, so I'm glad I joined this CAL for that reason alone...
  13. Thanks Doula4u , for the lovely compliment on my 3SUB.. I work mostly on mine during evening hours while watching tv, plus I'm pretty much a night owl, so between the computer and working around the house I get a few inches worked in...I'm really ready to have this one finished, and as Debbi said it is a great way to learn the way colors mix and blend together. I will know from this experience what NOT to blend together to get a pretty effect.. The red and bright yellow looks pretty yucky in mine, too, but at least I see what colors do look nice together. I'm eager to see y'alls beautiful blankets, so please do post a piccy if you have one, or when you get your SUB finished... Thanks again - Peyton

  19. I'm half way done with my 3SUB... This thing is getting very awkward to handle, but it will be soo warm when winter gets here... Hope my picture works, and isn't to big.
  20. Hi y'all, I am new to C'ville message board and to all these CAL's.. I'm so glad I found this one. I've started my 3SUB, and have about 25 or so rows completed now. I started with a chain of 103 or 105 and am doing a simple double crochet on it.. At first I thought 'this is gonna be so ugly' but the farther I go the prettier it gets, and the HEAVIER...WOW hope I can get it done before it gets to HOT here in Texas.. When I learn how to upload pictures, I'll post a sample of mine. Thanks for starting this CAL. It was just what I needed to get all my stash to disappear... see ya later... Peyton
