11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Patchwork Denim Bag-3 pics on: November 04, 2006 07:24:02 PM
I got the idea for a patchwork denim bag (with seams on the outside so they will fray) from someone on this board, so the idea is not mine, but this is my take on it.  I used 2 different colors of denim squares and some of the squares were done using the tie-dye technique but using bleach instead of dye.  I lined it with blue patchwork fabric and there is a pocket inside with a snap.  The top closes with a zipper.  My teen daughter loves it!

First time posting pictures-ever-anywhere Huh-Hope it works!

12  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Fat Bottom Bag questions/NOW Finished! (PICS!) on: October 29, 2006 02:18:29 PM
After reading and seeing all the great projects from SnB Happy Hooker, I finally purchased a copy of the book!   I'm thrilled with all the great projects in the book, and my 14 y/o daughter has placed Postit notes on nearly every page to let me know what she wants!!

Here are my questions...I am going to make the Fat Bottom Bag as my first project from the book.  My daughter wants it made out of Red Heart Super Saver camo yarn.  Should I use 2 strands of yarn or will one strand be enough for a good sturdy shaped bag?  Also, is this bag worked from one SIDE to the other? (not bottom to top?)  I'm a more visual person and it would help to know where I'm starting.  I've crocheted for many years, but usually I just wing it and skip patterns. 


UPDATE:  I finished the bag in a couple days! Once I got past the initial fear of the pattern, it was easy!



Thanks for looking!
