You all have been so inspiring. The bags I've seen here are so pretty. After seeing these, I caught the bug and made four of them. Pictures are on my blog. I'm planning to make some for my sisters and Mom. I just hope I don't get tired of making them since I have five sisters! I don't consider the first three I've made worthy of gifting. They were just practice, but good enough for me to use.

 

I just started one in Paton's SWS in Natural Plum. I'll put the picture on my blog when it's done.

 

Keep up the great work everyone!

ok i have finished my FBB's

the smaller one i am not going to line as it has very tight stitches and i will only use it to go out for dinner/pub etc :)

i was going to crochet around the handles but i thought the handles looked pretty good as is :yes

the other one supersized ~ i used 2 strands of 8ply yarn and a 8mm hook, i went for the crocheted handles as i am not a fan of the wooden/plastic ones for myself.....i lined it too ....and i am sooo happy with it :woo i am going to make another one but just a tad smaller, as this one is big enough that i could fit a baby in it :lol

Oh wow, Clare, great job! I especially like the one with the crocheted handles. How did you do the handles? I'm thinking of doing another one with crocheted handles myself since it's not easy to find cheap bag handles here (I don't want to pay $20/pair from Spotlight!).

lis- I used a Nifty Knitter for mine. I just tied the ends together and did the rest of the pattern exactly the same.

i just did a chain of about 10 (using a size 8mm hook and 2 strands of 8ply yarn) then joined the chain with a slip stitch, and just crocheted a tube :) make the tube long enough to go over your shoulder and then though the handle flaps that you crocheted on your bag......sew the ends of the handles together and then place on bag sew the flap over the handle and repeat on other side

 

DONT FORGET THAT THE HANDLES WILL STRETCH !!!!! SO MAKE THEM SHORTER THAN U NEED THEM :)

 

 

Please please tell me how you did it!!

Thanks so much!!!

 

 

all i did was use a size 8mm hook and 2 strands of 8ply and it makes it really thick EASY PEESY :hook just follow the pattern as normal :yes
