I made this bag over the weekend as a gift for a coworker. I made it sqaure bottomed with the help of Jordy's tutorial. I used BeppyCat's pattern to crochet the flowers, although I stopped at Rnd 3. It is lined with a colour similar to the green flower and it closes with velcro. The brown flower has a stem that goes all the way down too, you just can't see it in the picture.
I just made 3 of these for my Dad for xmas. He's always aching here, there and everywhere. They are all different sizes. I also made him two little ones to put in his gloves as someone had suggested. He works outside during the winter a lot, so I thought it would be great. I made them all out of blue corduroy that I got at VV... all this fabric used to be a pillowcase! I filled them with a rice/flax seed/cinnamon mixutre.
