Hello, everybody. This is the first time I'm writing and the first time I made anything wearable.
I asked my mother to teach me how to crochet during Carnival, when I was extremely bored, and she taught me how to dc, but refused to teach anything else until I was good at that by her standards. Then I googled crochet and taught myself the other stitches while she was out. I'm not sure she forgave me that yet...
Anyway, I made a few amigurumis, let it for a few months and just decided to try again.
This time I made a FBB for my mother, after unraveling everything a few times. I'm not too pleased with the handles (one longer than the other, and the shorter one is a bit wider - I'll buy handles for the next one), and the stitches to sew the lining are all uneven, but overall I think it worked.

You can't see on the pics, but the thread is brown cotton with red shiny viscose, and it shines a bit on the sun. The flowers were crocheted using satin ribbon.
