Thanks everyone! Nope, didn't use a pattern and it was actually really easy.

The houndstooth stitch is really easy, your first row (after your beginning chain) you alternate two dc and two sc, at the end of the row, switch to an alternate color and repeat back across making sure that every sc you dc into this time and vice versa. Two dc or two sc should never be on top of one another -

this bag is just made of two rectangles of equal size done in the houndstooth and then a single crochet around the edges in the brown to finish. Then, make the sides and bottom as one continuous piece, just dc in brown, and then stitch it all together. The handles and the "bunching" I don't know if I can explain without the aid of a diagram.

easy purse, made it in a couple of nights and was really pleased with how it turned out - i only hope my swap partner liked it!!! Grin
