This is my second completed crochet project, and the first one from this book.

It's for my mother, as a late mother's day present. I started it two days before mother's day, and finished it today. She picked out the colours, but unfortunately we could not find nylon cording anywhere. The only material we could find that wouldn't stretch was in colours that she didn't like, so I went for cotton and made a lining. You can see a ribbon weaving through the inside of the strap - that's to keep it from stretching. It goes all the way inside the bag and attaches at the inner bottom.

That's me modeling it. My mother's about the same size and shape, so it'll be the same on her. I just gave it to her and she's very happy with it.

I had an issue with this bag at the rows where it wanted 3-dc clusters. It made it bunchy at the bottom above the shells, then I had to decrease over the next few rows to get my stitch count right. When I did that row again at the top with the dc clusters, I just did a single dc instead of 3 in one spot. Aside from that, I love this pattern.

How creative with the contrasting stripe!  Kudos!

If you do decide to make this bag again, you can get the nylon cord at Hobby Lobby, where they carry the brand, or from their online affliate store.  But it seems that your yarn worked out just fine!  Hope your mom likes it.  The best gifts are handmade with love.

Thanks. Smiley I don't think there is a Hobby Lobby here (I'm in Canada), but there is a Michael's about an hour's drive away, so I'll try there next time.
