Just finished lining and blocking.  I saw this pattern and had to make it even though I don't have any idea when I will ever use it.  I have mentioned before that I have a huge stash of white #10 crochet cotton so I take every opportunity when I find a pattern I like.

and a close up of one of the tiers with beads

Pattern from this book:

which I got from my local library

I changed out the handles from the pattern because it called for a thread wrapped coffee can lid and the bag itself will be hard enough to keep clean much less a handle of crochet thread.

Adorable!  Great idea with the handle... what are people thinkin with absorbent white material for handles?  To protect your bag there is a spray-on product called Vectra that I've had success with on shoes.  I know a person who sprays it on her white athletic shoes and they stay very nice.  Of course, she's only wearing them in the gym and to/from the car, but still.  It's not cheap, but protecting that work might be worth it.  Usually it's available at shoe stores and shoe repair shops.   My 9 oz bottle has a sticker for $11.00 (US) and lists their website: www.vectraspray.com.

TheMistressT - I am going to look into that - I am worried enough about the white cotton body that this looks like a good idea

Absolutely gorgeous!
