I finished!!
I'm so excited, this is the first purse I ever finished and it is totally my design! (I have no idea what inspired me to do this)
Sorry about the giant pics. I don't know how to resize them

Brilliant! Funny, witty and original, and it still makes a really attractive bag.

That is gorgeous! I generally don't like crochet bags, but that is one I absolutely am in love with! The color, and the symmetry of the design is so on! You could do that in many colors to look like different flowers. Like one in pale blue would look like a Blue Bell, or on in purple would look like Wisteria. Wow! Me want!  Smiley

Crocheting makes me want to stab out my eyeballs, but I want this so bad I'm willing to do it! It's really brilliant. Pattern please? Pretty please? I'd pay for this pattern...

 Huh
I freehanded it!! But if I really try I could probably figure out the pattern. (I think) I'll give it a go.

Also... there is a depressing amount of sewing involved.

There will be a tutorial soon! (darnit) I've been very lazy, and haven't been crafting at all. But I'll get on it. The only stipulation I have is that I want to see pictures and here about any improvments on the pattern. You guys are all probably way better crocheters than I am and I wanna learn!
thanks ebverybody so much for their nice responses!  Grin
