My son took the green and white one to school for a teacher gift.  His teacher loves John Deere.  With the yellow and green flower he said it was a John Deere purse.

I think they are gorgeous!  Where they hard to line?  What did you use for the handles on the second purse?

Hi
No they weren't hard to line.  I just put the finished bag on the fabric and cut around it.  Sewed up the edges.  Put in a snap. *now the crappy part*  sewed in the lining by hand.  I hate doing that but it's not hard.  The handles on the green purse were some 6 or 7" macrame rings from hobby lobby.  They were  $0.62.  Kind of skinny but I liked them.  Thanks for the nice compliment.

Your bags are gorgeous.  I am almost done with my first one but have run into trouble....care to help me?  I just can't figure out the handle flaps.  I'm doing to green bag---as the pattern says I end the body (row 52) with 17 sts.  Then start the handle flaps--row 1 has 26 sts...waa?  I don't mathematically understand it.  Maybe what I don't get is "working across row end sts" -- am I crocheting in the wrong place?

This is my third project (from the book and ever) and would truly appreciate any advice you can give me.

Thanks!
