Hi everyone,

I can't find the post where I promised a copy of this bag, so I've started this one to show it off.  I'm really happy with the way it turned out, as is the friend I made it for.  She goes to bingo every week, so the fabric was a great choice, and as she goes early, she takes along her crochet to keep busy with while she waits.



The lining is just plain black poplin and there aren't any inner pockets as she didn't want any.  Sorry about the cruddy pic....am trialling a webcam that should be doing a better job of pics than it is.

Let me know what you think of it....good/bad/ugly....all comments are welcome.

Hugs
Naomi

That looks really good. The last few sanibel knock off's that I  made I used really wide straps but I think I like the look of yours with the thinner ones. I may have to try that next.

Thanks for all the compliments everyone....my head can hardly fit in the room right now!

As for the straps, from memory I make them about 1" finished, and that seems to make an ok size pocket space at the end....I think if they were much wider, the pockets on the size bag I make, wouldn't be useable.
