Love, love, LOVE this book....

I was in such a fever when I bought it, I don't even remember now which of these I made first  Cheesy

Here's my Fat-Bottom. Bag, that is.



I used remnants from my stash: Bernat Dishcloth cotton for the bag, and a bit of yellow Dale Kolibri for the trim. Flower from Wal-Mart! I had trouble sewing it on, so I ended up just pinning it with a safety pin. So now I can change it around if I want.

Like someone else who has posted, I made my Short 'n Sweet longer than the pattern specified



Stash yarn again: 4 (I think) balls of Reynolds Saucy in Light Emerald.

There's lots more in this book I want to make!

That colour and yarn was a great choice for the Short n' Sweet, it really makes the stitch pattern stand out. Lovely!

You did a great job on both.  I wish I had that bag last weekend, it would have looked wonderful with the outfit I wore.   O.K, now I have to make a white one too.

I wasn't a big fan of the Fat Bottomed Bag when I got this book, but it looks completely different in white....I really like your version!

Your 'fat bottom' is so pretty.  I love the added flower detail.
