OK, I finished row 52 and I know that its not 100% perfect but I want to continue just so that I can understand what I am doing before I do my next one.

 

I am so stumped at this point. I have no idea how to continue with the Handle Flap - do I have to crochet the sides of the bag ?

 

Please help

 

Should it look like this

AuntBubbels,

 

You 2sc together on the long sides of the bag, 2sctog over 2 hdc rows until you get around 30 sc (more or less)

 

Personally, to make the holes less obvious, I only do 2 sctog after making a sc in between 2 sc togs (clear as mud?) and continue to do that for 2 rows to make the gathers.

 

1loopshort's pic should show you how and where the sc dec should be made.

 

HTH!!!

Not so clear but I will give it a shot - bottom line is that I need to crochet the sides closed!!!

 

thanks for getting back to me and I will let you know how it goes

 

thanks again

How'd it go, Janet? Did you figure it out? I was confused with the last step as well until I understood you did have to crochet the sides closed.

 

Mine is finished with handles - finally :)

Looks great! Love the colors...I caved and started another two nights ago...with some Jiffy Thick and Quick that I have had lying around...with an N hook, so its gonna be a giant! Im on the decreasing rows right now and I should be able to finish it tonight, maybe! Since it is so big, Im making it a shoulder-type bag, instead of mini handles on a ridiculously huge bag ;) Im sort of using this as a distraction from my starghan that is taking forever...Im in for the quick fix! Yay for fat bottoms :cheer hehehehehe

How long has it taken you guys to make them? A few hours/days? Just curious as to how much devotion I'll be giving this. :)

I made mine in a weekend, pretty much. But to be honest I didn't do too much else! I did around half the main body while queuing for 2 hours to buy Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows hahaha!

It's quick to make though. I think the majority of my time was spent trying to make my sewing machine work to make the lining :D

I am so tempted to join this one :manyheart I just got the book a few days ago and it is one of the things in there I want to make. I have two questions though :think How does this turn out with Red Heart SS? I would like to use up my stash (and how much yarn - the book is at home and I'm at work) Second question: Roughly how much fabric to line this bag? I checked the tutorial but wasn't clear how much fabric (depends on the size of the bag bt in general how much?)

 

Thanks and I'm likely in on this one when I finish my other two CALS :devil

I used about 1 skein - it doesn't take much and I also got 1/2 yard of material cut and it was too big. I have not used RHSS, but I am sure it would be great ;)

I started and finished the first part of my FBB today! I could not put it down. I'm now at the stage where I need to do the lining.

 

I'm a bit nervous as I don't have a sewing machine and I'm also terrible at sewing with thread. I can whipstitch with yarn, but for some reason I cannot get the knots right on my sewing thread. (It's so bad, I still bring socks to my mother for patching, lol).

 

Any tips on how to make a sturdy knot with sewing thread? I don't want my lining to fall apart!!

Cotton, acrylic, wool, blend of something? I've got 'em all, need to start doing some stash busting.

 

TGIF!!!!

Lets see...I have done a FBB in just about any material...my first was in some bulky mercerized cotton...my second was a giant felted version with Cascade 220 wool, I have made two in Softee Chunky acrylic ( I think it was two), the one I currently use is Moda dea cache wool blend...I like them all...I think that i like the acrylic and cotton, just because you can wash them if you use the right kind of handles or do buttons, like on AmyS version...the one I am working on right now is acrylic also and it is turning out great! Good luck, and as you can see, this is sorta addicting!

i'm going to try this one, I have the book. I need to finish a prayer shawl and a shrug for my daughter first though. So it could be a week before I can get started. I've never lined anything I've crocheted before so that part will probably be interesting.

Given I am currently making my first FBB - I guess I should join in :). I'm making it in a bright yellow acrylic. It is working up really quickly. I have fabric to line it with but need to get some handles :).

I'm in too! Will start on it and post photos end of the week.

 

This will be my 2nd FBB -- the first one was made before discovering this thread. I just love this bag, and can imagine it in every color! They work up quickly and are a great stash-buster!

 

This one will definitely be lined, though, so it doesn't stretch out!

a few weeks ago. It's seen a lot of use, and is very stretched out. It wasn't lined, but oh well, i use it all the time and can't go anywhere without compliments.

The next one will be better I hope :)

Love your FBB, Lara! I also love the other items you pictured. I have been dying to make the same flower purse from Skamama! Adorable!

 

Whereabouts in MI did you visit? That's were I live :)
