Hi all,
I finished my first crocheted bag. 
I'm happy with the results although this bag is more for fall or winter, so I'm going to wait until then to use it and show off my work.  The pattern is from "Crochet me" and it's very easy to follow.  The picture from crochet me shows a smaller bag I don't know why.  I started yesterday afternoon, and finished it a few hours ago.  It took me about 3 to four hours approximately.  Due to the nature of the yarn "Big" from Lion Brand, this project goes very quickly.  The best part is that I got the yarn from a dollar store.  I only used two hanks instead of three that the pattern calls for and some of my black scrap yarn.
Your comments will be very much appreciated.

Thank you for looking!

Looks great! I've always wanted to do this pattern but the picture on the site is of a very small purse and I really wanted to make a proper sized handbag.

Feliciter,
I used the same yarn and crochet hook advised in the pattern, but since the gauge is not important according to the instructions I did not check that.  However as you can see in the picture, the purse is a very good size.
Thank you for the comments.
