I made a Fat Bottom, which I also tried to line. I know someone a while ago asked about lining Fat Bottoms, and I tried it. It didn't come out quite perfect (it took me a whole hour alone just to figure out
how I should sew it, and once I started, I poked my fingers a gazillion times), but then again, I'm a horrible seamstress anyway, so I know someone else would've done a much better job. But still, not bad for my first try.
This was a present for my best friend (because I would only suffer this much for her!).
Bag yarn - Caron Simply Soft, white
Clear plastic handles - I forget the brand, but I got them from Michael's
Freak ass expensive fabric - from local fabric store. It's light purple spatters against a white, sheen-y background. The photo really does NOT do it justice. It's absolutely gorgeous.
Pin - one I found, and have had for years. It reminds me of that 1928 line of jewelery.
The bag, put together
Close-up of the pin. The center is a kind of pinkish purplish jewel thing. (Yeah, I'm so articulate!)
The lining. I SUCK at sewing, but I tried my best. It was really really hard! I guess I will never have that gift.Oh, and we must not forget the gift wrap!
I wrapped the purse in tissue paper, and then I wrapped some green yarn (again, Caron Simply Soft - obviously my favorite) a couple times and left a little tail, of sorts. To the top of the tail I attached a daffodil (pattern from Michaels.com, but it's no longer there, so hit me up if you want me to email it to you) that I made from some leftover Sugar 'n' Cream yellow. So now there's a flower on the front
Awww. It was pretty nice, because I have notecards with yellow buttercups on them, and the envelope has green stripes inside.

I took all the photos at 2am in the garish light of my yellow-y desk lamp. Not the brightest idea (ha! pun!).
Now that I'm done with this, I should REALLY finish my crocheted skirt and sweater and knitted scarf... I have way too many projects piling up...
If for some reason the pictures don't work, I have a pretty much identical write-up here: http://community.livejournal.com/likeiceiscold/1098.html
My personal craft thing. Very short, since this is only my 3rd completed project.
