I have lurked on Craftster for YEARS!  While I know the crafty community is very accepting, I have never felt the inclination to post any of my projects until this very day.  My mother taught me to sew when I was a little girl and I haven't been able to stop.  Of course, there have been lapses in my sewing so I could learn new crafty things (college, relationships, moving, etc.),but I never leave it for very long. 

My latest (completed) project is the following green bag.  It's absolutely huge and I would recommend cutting down the size to make something more manageable as an every day bag.  I love purses, but I don't carry large ones as it becomes too heavy to carry. 

Here's the whole bag!

The details of the fabric. 

The fabric on the handles is pretty cool.  It makes the whole bag seem like a tree!

If you would like to read more about it and see the link to the pattern just follow my http://knititinthebud.blogspot.com/2009/06/crafter-fo-evah.html blog.  You'll have to read about my adventures in growing plants first, but the actual blog post is in the second half of that post. 

I'd appreciate any feedback you have for me.  Thank you all in advance. 

Crafters are the best people in the world.  Plus, it makes them environmentally friendly which I also love.  Wink

I really like the handles, of course buttons are always the perfect finishing touch!
