Don't worry, it's just a plastic boob.

i finished crocheted these awhile ago, but just lined them a couple months ago.  the darker green one was crocheted over 3 years ago!! but i'm glad i waited until i had the perfect fabric....the bicycle print came from my grandma's stash.  that stuff must be 20 years old!!


i think i found the flower pattern in one of grandma's books from the 60's




cute right?


(fabric scissors for scale)


lining fabric recycled from old skirt

Did you line your In Bloom before or after you sewed the sides up?  I just decided to try lining mine, which was already sewn up and already had the flower on the front, and it was a giant pain in the rear.  If I do it again, I will do it before I sew up the sides!

I have 2 bags I've crocheted that are sitting around waiting to be lined too :-) I fully agree that it's worth it to wait until you find the perfect lining--it makes all the difference! The lining you chose (for both bags) looks great and really professionally done (especially the snap closure). This gives me hope that I, too, can one day line my bags! :-)

I covet these purses!!  Grin Purses and scarves are what drew me to fiber arts in the first place....Where they very hard to make? That is, how advanced an artist does one need to be?

i actually made it a few years ago, used it quite a bit, and then got my hands on the fabric.  it was a pain in the ass.  i turned it inside out, sewed the lining on, then flipped it back.  i definitely learned my lesson.
