I love that first bag!!! I wish I could crochet! (Actually I have decided after I finish the swap I'm in I'm going to teach myself although I'm pretty sure I'll just end up confused as I am a knitter...) Is there a pattern or tutorial or did you just make it up?

These are really cute! I've been wanting to do a pouch type bag. How did you line them? I have some other bags I'm going to line, but not real sure how to go about it. Thanks!
