here it is:
I've been working crazy hours lately and last night around 2 a.m. I took a pic.  The 2nd one is really shakey but you can see what happens to an unlined bag when you add a wallet, cell phone, and ipod. If I throw my lunch in, it hangs down past my knees... so it needs lined. This project is totally labour intense, especially since I don't have a sewing machine. groan. Another 2 weeks of satchel construction.

I only have the seaming left to do on my satchel. I have no idea how to crochet and I'm pretty bad at seaming so finishing this is going to be a learning process. For a first big project, I think the satchel was a good choice and I'm really pleased with the pinned together version Smiley -pictures to come-

Does anyone have any pictures of their completed satchel yet? I'd really like to see some variations in case I want to make this again some day

Thanks Mikan..
The inside pocket is kinda small. I haven't decided whether to line the bag or not - and if I do I'll also make a pocket out of material and likely make it a little bigger. The one i knitted is 4.5 x 8 inches.

oooh, my first crafster post! and my first big project!
I've been working on this bag since I got the yarn for it Christmas day. Off and on, because I can't handle THAT much seed stitch.
I didn't pick out my yarn colours, and apparently, because a cotton/wool blend wasn't available when my mom went yarn shopping, I'm making mine in Bernat Denim - a brown, green, red color combination like the pattern called for. So not what I would have chosen, but it is starting to grow on me.
I have finished the strap, the inside pocket, and the back and flap - something of every color - behold:

i always save weaving the ends in until the last minute... and yes, the date on my camera is wrong
