Hi everyone.

lulu, are you using a mac?  I tried getting it to print on a mac and it wouldn't work, but it worked on a Dell.

Juaniece, I was hesitant about the handles too, but they seem to hold up fine.  I really like it.  The bag is super light.  If you do it, be careful when you stitch the bias tap on (particularly the handle part).  I didn't cut my fabric so it was exactly matching the lining so I had a few issues where I had to go back and hand stitch the bias tape to fully cover the material.

This was my first purse and I think it wasn't hard at all, so I'd totally go for it if you guys want to make it.  I'll let you know if I have any issues with the handles falling apart or something.

Hi everyone!  This is actually my very first sewn purse ever!  I used the bias tape tut. that someone posted on here the other day (http://www.belleepoquewhimsy.com/bias-tape-tote-tute).  I have been dying to use this Amy Butler fabric for months!
Thanks for looking.

I wish I could help.  I think (and this is a serious think.  I did this a few months ago and I dont' have my book) that it has something to do with reserving the very center 18 stitches as the neck portion.  Like, if you make a small it will have less stitches across (in the previous row) than if you were to make a large, so it can't give you an exact number to crochet. 

So I belive you take the number of stitches that you have done in the previous row, subtract 18, then divide by two.  Then you use that number to make the front part.  So if you have 40 stitches on the previous row, you subtract 18 which makes 22.  Then you divide 22 by 2 which is 11.  So you would crochet 11, then turn for the next row.  Make sense?

I hope this is right!  That's how I seem to remember it.  Someone please correct me if I'm totally off.
