Hello all!

First time posting a project here, and first time doing a bag! The husband and I are off to a gaming event in a few days and I've been working my tail off trying to get this finished in time so I could take it with me. I've finally managed it tonight.

The bag is all crocheted in sc. The top, bottom, back, front, and flap are all one long piece; I worked ws when I got to the "seams" to give the illusion of separate pieces, and also to create a boxy, messenger-bag style. The whole thing, including the strap, is lined with plain black fabric, which has been hand sewn as I don't have a machine. (I'm rubbish at sewing, so the lining is by far the most disappointing part of the whole work, but it was necessary to keep everything from stretching out.) The body has also been interfaced with a medium, iron-on interfacing, so it holds the shape really nicely. ^^ Enjoy!

this is awesome! I don't game on a console but I love the bag so much! The whole thing is perfect. I knew what it was right away and the construction looks fine to me. I can't see any flaws in the lining so I think you are beating yourself up over it to much.
Great job!

Me wants!!

I looove it! What a cute idea. I knit a bag a while back and tried to make it squarish & it never really held the shape too well -- I never even considered using iron on interfacing! I think the whole thing looks great (including the lining!). Good work!
