So I loved the last bag I made so much, that I decided to make one for my brother in laws fiance...  Who I don't know if you would call her my SIL when they get married next summer or not... would I?  Oh well, anyway...
Here's the bag.  The fabric doesn't look as odd as it does in the pic. My camera sucks!
I was going to add a loop to hook her keys on on the inside, but I forgot... Sad







One of my cats, Abbey Road, loves bags, and I couldn't get her away from it, sorry!

Oh, and I used the Butterflies and Fruit Pleated bag tut here on Craftster!

Life isn't complete 'til you crochet a uterus for a friend.  Just make sure your fallopian tubes point down and not up! No one needs to lose an eye this way! Wink

Hey... Thanks!  It's my second pleating attempt, and I am quite happy with it as well!  I thought it would be very hard!  My cat is very large, and she looks super obese in the pic I just realized, although she would definitely fit in the bag!
