Hi craftsters.  I finished this purse last night.  Today (A few minutes ago, actually) I was walking near the pond trying to find some water-plants for the fish-tank and I set my bag on some cypress knees so it wouldn't get dirty.  The colors were so well complimented by the moss and lighting I decided to take my pictures of it there!  Looks pretty, if I do say so myself.

This was made with some left over Lion Brand Jiffy yarn in coco in mostly sc and a couple dc stitches that I weaved some pretty sparkly yarn through.  Lining is some batik polka-dot stuff from my stash.Lots of pockets.  I did a pretty crappy job hand-stitching the lining to the crochet, but the thread was brown so luckily you can only see the crappy-ness from one side. 
I like it, but it keeps picking up pieces of dirt and lint and stuff-  that yarn is  like velcro. 
I hope you like it, thanks for looking!

That's so pretty! I have no idea how to crochet and admire anyone that does. I think the lining looks really good with it and I love the photos =)

Oh, this is very pretty.  I like how the outside has just a little of the bright color you see on the inside.  And I agree that it looks very nice photographed outdoors.  (Though I think I see some poison ivy in the background!)  Smiley

 Wink yea, there probably is some poison ivy in the background, it's all over the place here.  I've never really gotten it though (to the envy of my friends and family) so I only kind-of know what it looks like. 
Thanks for your comments I really appreciate them.  I think I may need to learn to crochet flowers and do it in the shimmery yarn for the front, I think it may need something... maybe not, cause like Corntree said I also like the mere peek of the same color of the lining (a happy accident).
