my cousin asked to wear my FBB to a party, and her friend went crazy about it. she asked me to make her one and i said yes  Undecided
not so sure it was a wise decision... but at least if she goes on with it she'll buy the yarn, which is a nice change from my usual pattern of buying yarn and buying yarn and then some more.

I know what you mean!  I took mine to work and everyone and their brother wanted me to make them one.  I told them if they wanted to pay me for my time, I would be happy to make it for them.  Smiley  They weren't so sure they "needed" one after that! LOL

sooo... the girl paid attention when i said i'd do it if she bought the yarn. however, she didn't pay any attention when i showed her all the different kinds of yarn i had at home and  which ones would be suitable, giving her the names and showing the minimum thickness that i needed. i even showed her one kind of yarn that would work for it, as long as i used two strands.
then today she sends me a ball of cotton thread.

I'd send it back to her with a written explanation of what you need. Perhaps pictures of yarn labels too. give her the benefit of the doubt though and suggest perhaps she was too excited when you said yes and didn't understand what you meant....

If she requests you use the thread explain how small her bag will be and do it with a bigger hook than is required. perhaps a b or c hook?
(if I recall correctly you don't like little thread hooks right?)
good luck!

Fruitloops- I was really excited when I saw your gorgeous bag because I just bought that yarn. How many balls of the yarn did you use on the bag?
Thanks
