I'm in! I've made a few of these as gifts for other people - this one is going to be for me! I'll be able to start in about a week as I'm finishing up a mother's day afghan, but please count me in.

I started making my first FBB over the weekend. I am almost done and should complete it today. I need to look thru my fabric stash to see if I have anything to line it with.

 

I am worried though that if these are addciting as people say---I may need to run out for more handles. LOL

Finished a felted version of our beloved fat bottom!! I used Cascade 220 in fuschia, three strands held together. It took me a long time to pick out the perfect handles, but I think these really make it! Man, though, it was so hard to sew the handles and the trim on this guy...it is one thick bag!!

Ugh! I hate when that happens...you know that stuff is in the house somewhere! I usually remember that I put it in a special place, but then can't remember what the special place was. You will find them when you are searching for something else!

I can't my my stash of handles!!! :eek

Thanks, ladies...Im really in for the bright colors...pink and green are two of my favorites for a combo. Im still plugging away at some more. I am lucky, though...I graduated with my Master's a couple weeks ago and my hubby bought me a sewing machine for graduation! He said that he noticed how much time I spent sewing the lining into these and how I could be crocheting instead of pinning and hand sewing, so he got me the machine...to quote "This degree is a big deal and it deserves something big; something you want and would never buy yourself"....I have a wonderful man!

This is some hand-dyed cording that I picked up at my local LYS. Kinda bright, but I think I'm going to like it.
