hey guys, all these bags are so cute!!!! i just got the book and learned how to knit and i want this to be my next project... except, i'd like a more fat, rounder bag (i mean not have that rectangle shape) and a little bit longer straps (i always have my purse over my shoulder), and i was wondering if anyone could tell me how to do this???

This is a birthday present for a female relative made with Patons' Jet. My first foray into felting/fulling. I was rather nervous about putting it in the washing machine and boy, did it smell bad. It turned out great though  Smiley The Jet felts up really well.

SHould be easy enough to make a crochet version.  You know those bags you can make out of old shopping bags???  The pattern is similar to this...you start at the bottom with a chain then single crochet up one side, then instead of turning and going back over the same sc's again you sc up the other side of the chain.  join the beginning with a slip stich and go all the way around with sc's again marking each round.  Build the bag this way (working in circles) until the bag body is the desired height.  To make a handle...sc a few inches in then chain (skipping the sc's below) then sc to the edge again (repeat on back of bag).  Make a few more rounds...done and done.

If you use a slightly larger hook than the yarn calls for you can then felt it nicely.

'course you'll have to actually find %100 wool (good luck) in Winnipeg and you have to finish all your crochet Yoda's first Smiley
