Okay so it doesn't look all that big in this picture, but I swear I could live out of this thing. I used the pattern of the green fbb from the book, but the same yarn type and hook size as Emiko Hime http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=185953.0



The handles are in the process of being made..I'm crocheting them so that I have a should strap, I like that better than the solid, round handles.

If you crochet the strap I highly recommend lining one side with fabric. Crochet stretches really bad. I actually did the exact same thing as you same pattern same hook, I used a different yarn but the same weight. lol
So I speak from experience here! Wink
I had to quit using it becasue I didn't line the handles and they just kept stretching! I even unraveled them twice and re-crocheted them shorter and they still stretched out!

on a fun note: I love your color choices! They are so pretty together!
