love it!  I need a purse with a strap long enough to wear, or I will leave it sitting somewhere.

*sweetie my daughter is trying to crochet this FBB right now.  i had to take her to get the book, then go to joann for the needle size N, 2 skeins of yarn (which was not enough, i told her to get extra just in case), and had to go to michael's for the 3rd skein. i pray that it comes out correct it looks great to me.  i really appreciate ur FBB that inspired her to go beyond her capability.  she is using a pattern for the first time and have several books around to assist her and of course me (i do not know much more than her but i do my best with assisting her).

Thanks everyone for the kind comments!   Grin

Also, there is basically nbothing different you have to do for this bag, just use a super bulky yarn and a size N-15 hook!  No extra rows or increases needed Smiley

I'm so happy you tried this bigger! I'd been thinking about trying it because what you said is true. The little one is just that...too little for me. I'm a big girl, I need big accessories. lol.

Yeah, I *sorta* did.  I didn't have enough fabric, so it came out really crappy, but there's a tutorial on lining it somewhere....

All I know is that you're supposed to line it BEFORE adding the handles that hold the straps!!!!!

*yes, i did see that.  my daughter put her strap on before putting the lining in.  i am on row 41 right now.  i can not wait to see how it comes out.  did u hand or machine sew the lining in?  i am thinking i hand baste the lining first then machine sew it*  are you going to make another FBB soon?
