Almost a Bag!

Yesterday ended up being six kinds of crazy, so no time to blog, but I'm here today!

I got the shell edging around the top edge of my bag and as you can see by the blue thing laying on it, I'm working on the handles. That's the first handle you see there. As it turned out I didn't have to learn a new stitch for the shell edging, it was US double crochet, but the handles are in single crochet. So I got out the How To Crochet Book and learned how to single crochet. I'm keeping notes on this handle so the second handle is the same size.

I haven't decided if I will line the bag or just leave it as it is, but I will probably put something in the bottom of the bag to make it have a firm bottom and sit (or slouch) nicely. I also don't know if I'll put the flowers on the handles, I'm still thinking big buttons, but I'm not sure yet. Oh, the decisions I have to make each day...

You could use plastic cross stitch canvas to stiffen the bottom. I think it would be sturdier then cardboard and won't fold when it gets damp.

The bag is just so lovely. I agree with Rachel about the plastic cross stitch canvas for the bottom.

It's looking great! I like the shell edging in a soft, neutral color, finishes it off nicely.
