Hey Everyone!

So I'm pretty much a Craftster stalker  Wink , but I finally decided to join! I've been looking at everyone's AMAZING projects for about a year, so here we go: My first post on craftster!  Shocked

I made this bag for my cousin (she loves nautical stuff) for her 16th b-day. I used red-heart sport yarn, double stranded throughout, except for the anchor. I wanted to keep this SOOO bad after I made it, but I did take some pictures!

The Marvelous bag:


The handles:


Close-up on the anchor (which was quite something to sew on)


And on me:


Sorry all of the pictures are blurry, my camera is stupid.
(and I got the pattern from Crochet Today magazine)
What do you think?

Very cute! You did a great job. The lines are so crisp, I don't blame you for wanting to keep it.

It looks like the anchor is smiling!  I guess its the round circles at the top that made me think of a face..  I think this bag looks so professional and amazing!  You did a fantastic job.. and You are pretty smart for taking pictures of it!  Make a bag for yourself now!
