A very fashionable friend asked me to make her something, as crocheted items are supposedly "big" this spring. Out of a bunch of patterns I emailed her, she liked the Fleuri bag, and since I was bored this weekend, I made one. I used about 2 oz of hand-me-down, so-old-it's-no-longer-made Bernat Carmen yarn, a thin worsted weight cotton yarn in a screaming red color, and a G hook. I left off the plastic handles, and added a wrist strap; otherwise, I followed the pattern. It came out 5 in. wide, with a 5 in. strap. It definitely needs a zipper, and I'm debating on lining it. My question is: for those of you who have made crocheted bags, do you line them? If so, how do you make it look nice?
the front of the bag - the color is waaaay brighter in person

hey jennye....i'm finally done w/my poncho & starting a fleuri clutch!! i'm so excited and scared at the same time! [ about the zipper install
) ] right now I'm at the point of almost finishing the front of the bag before the petals ........ i was wondering at what point did u do the wrist strap? did u just keep crocheting after finishing the front ?..or??
im a little confused at this part too. any help would 'again' be appreciated
