The skirt is gorgeous!  You said that you got the pattern while you were participating in a croceht-along.  Do you know if the pattern is still available, and if so, where would I find it?

Hey - I so wanted to see your bag (and to let everone else see) I fixed you pics for you  Grin

Thanks!  I ended up uploading them onto Craftster photo hosting, and now they work.  For some reason, neither flickr nor my blog like me very much today  Undecided
24  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet Squared Messenger Bag on: November 30, 2007 11:50:13 AM
Lately I've been fascinated with created crochet designs that involve crocheting into holes made in fabric or paper.  This project continues that trend.  The squares on the messenger bag are fabric squares that I sewed together.  I installed eyelets around the edges, and then crocheted into the holes created by the eyelets.  I then attached these fabric/crochet squares together and crocheted the rest of the bag, including the strap.  After this, I sewed a lining and lined the inside and the strap.  The result is a durable, unique messenger bag that combines crocheting and sewing beautifully.

Here's some of the raw details:
Yarns: (I used what I had available) KnitPicks Mainline in Butter Pecan, Elann.com Peruvian Highland Chunky, Lion Brand Wool-ease
Hook sizes: G hook and I hook
Pattern:  my own, which will soon be posted for free on my blog

And of course, here's the FO photos:

I keep seeing this pattern mentioned and didn't really take notice of it until now.  Because of yours, I might try it.  I like that the design is unique but not overpowering.

Your puppy is so cute!  And I love the sweater!

I remember reading in Couture Crochet by Lily Chin that crocheting into the back loop only also improves the drape of a garment.
