1  Re: Not your ordinary Fat Bottom Bag, Image Heavy.... in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by roundhouseknitter on: February 19, 2008 06:05:53 AM
This is my first fat bottom bag. Since Christmas is over and I'm not making for everyone else I was able to finish this yesterday and this bag is for ME! Grin.  I had two people try to buy it from me today, I am keeping it.....

This is a picture that shows the size of the bag (my 18 year old son is modeling, that is why he has his hood up....hee hee).

Here is the shell after I lined it with Illini fabric Wink.

Okay I'm really fascinated with how your bags are lined with materal! Do you cut the material to the size of crocheted pieces or do you crochet all of a piece and cut after and then kinda insert and sew. I've been a sewer and crocheter and knitter like forever but I line my bags with a canvas tote bag. Boring! What I'm trying to gush is that your bags look so very professional with their linings. I really love how the two crafts are mixed looking so beautifully! And I cannot get my mind around how people can do that! So, is this crocheted in sections, lined and constructed that way, or crocheted in sections, pieces cut to those sections, and then constructed separatedly and then put together? The pockets are amazing. And the colors! Ouch, I love it!! Hope you don't mind me asking. I really would love it give something like this a try. Thanks for showing the amazing possibilities! Have a nice day.

All crocheted and straps lined before assembly

Put together, I added snaps and made the buttons

Put together and full - I added a cell phone pocket on one end and a larger pocket on the other for sunglasses, pens, etc.

I also sewed up a larger envelop type pouch to hold my combs, bills, anything long and a small zippered pouch.

Thanks for looking and I apologize for all the pics, I love to hear your comments!
