Computer and camera all in working order again and no more cell phone pics Smiley
The pictures are not the greatest(computer is down and so camera is also) but I was so happy to be finished it I can not say.  It was my first purse and my first time sewing a lining for a purse.  I hope to get better pictures up soon, but for now..here you go Smiley

front

back

firefly detail

inside

overall


I thought a request for a curious george purse would be easy, but one frogged version and then this one and I was done in...lol

So cute! I am a sucker for anything with Curious George on it! I think the bumblebees are my favorite part, though. Are they stitched on or buttons?

I love it!! how did you work out the pattern for him? did you use a chart or someone else's pattern? it looks AMAZING!! i thought for a minute you used tunisian crochet, cause it was so regular, but Im thinking its just regular crochet after looking at it closer. I would love some details!! Cheesy great job Cheesy

Thanks so much everyone!  I used a chart which I made from a picture I found online...not as easy as I thought it would be, as I never have made a chart before.  It is regular crochet but I think if I was ever to do it again I would do tapestry crochet.
The fireflies are buttons, I stitched a flight pattern on also, one on the front and one going up one of the straps.  I have better pictures on my camera, but need to get my computer fixed first.

Crocheting is like prostitution.  First you do it for love, and then for a few close friends, and then for money.  Maybe that is why they call us Hookers?

Well the person that ordered it for her daughter is not completely happy with it.  She would not give me an exact length for the straps, and crochet straps stretch over time anyways.  So i made 2 separate ones that is tied to the length you like and included instructions for a square knot.  she is not happy with that but I think her daughter will appreciate the fact it can be used as a shoulder bag or a tote or whatever.
yay for inspiring another person...thats great!

This is really adorable!  Did you machine or hand sew the lining in?  I made a crochet purse myself but wish I could figure out a way to fix the stretched out straps.  Undecided
