That's really neat! Looks really complicated to make.

It is mostly various fan motifs with flower motifs, various leaf motifs, and paisley motifs which I got from an Annie's attic  "How to free-form crochet" book, which included instructions for a lot of motifs, and then added a few from the web that I liked like the spiderweb on the back, and modified a few of the motifs in the book (changing the loop I crocheted into for texture mostly).  Then it's just laying them out and arranging to the way it pleases your eye, whipstitching it together, and adding bits to fill in gaps. You can find alot of motifs free on the internet, and there are several freeform books out there, and I would think most provide instructions for several motifs.

I really appreciate the responses, this was the first thing like this I made, and it's really hard to step back from your own work sometimes to see it from other eyes... between seeing "some * I made up" and "this project is my little baby" it was hard to know what to think of it.  I'll still chicken out of using it for my wedding in all likelihood (my original plan before I made it), but I feel much more confident about carrying it in public.

This is both a very nice bag, and a very good use of freeform techniques.
