I used one ball of Red Heart Foxy in "Sandy" held together with a blending worsted weight yarn to make this cute little (6.5" wide and 5" tall) crocheted bag.  The lining fabric is a peachy-gold colored shiny kind of fabric (I didn't pay attention enough in the store and forgot what it was).  Then I added a 1" gold button to keep it closed.  What do you think?

I love it! Cheesy  Is it your own design or did you get a pattern for it?  I would love to make one of these!   Grin

I made it up as I went along, which is saying a lot for me since I don't really fully understand how to make stitches into a pattern.  But all it is is a rectangle seamed up at the sides with an improvised handle.  I sewed the sides seams and hems of the lining with my machine, but I hand-sewed the lining in place.  I think I pretty much chained 23, then dc in every chain after that until it was the size I wanted (when folded in half.  Hopefully that makes sense.  It's super fast and super easy.

I improvised on the handle, but here's what I did...

I made a slip stitch where I wanted to attach the handle.  Then I chained however many I wanted for the length.  Then I attached it to the other side with a slip stitch, chained 1 and sc all the way to the other end, then repeated one more time.  Hope that makes sense!

Here are a couple more with different handle styles and sizes.

For the handle on the blue bag, I got some shiny silver cording and cut two pieces to the strap length that I wanted.  Then I pulled the end around a side stitch (from inside around the outside and back inside) and tied a knot.  I sewed the lining over the knots to cover them up and, to keep both strands of cording in place together and to strengthen them, I sewed the cord in place (and sewed over a few times to make it extra strong).  Then on the outside I noticed that I could see where the cording went around the stitch, so I decided to slip stitch the two stitches on either side together to hide it (you can't tell with the fuzzy yarn!).
