Gorgeous! I want to try this, whenever I can get some of my other stuff finished.

my nieces would just flip if I made them these bags.... I wonder if I could get them made by easter to match their ponchos I made them??? I'll give it a try. Thanks for the inspiration!

I made mine in a weekend.  The pattern is easy to follow, and it works up pretty quickly.  I'd love to see pics of the ponchos and bags!

crocheted things are becoming huge this spring, yes. It kills me to look through Elle and see a crocheted skirt going for $400 that even someone with limited crochet skills (aka me) could do with minimal effort and $20. Oh well.

Your friend is probably very greatful that you saved her about $80 on a purse she could have found in a similar pattern at a store. I do want a bag in that pattern in BRIGHT pink with black outer petals and a bright green back and handle... Wow I'm dreaming of some hard work on my part, lol. Gorgeous Smiley

Great idea to add a wriststrap jennye! Here is my version. I knitted a tube for the wriststrap on double pointed needles. This was my first attempt at putting a zipper in anything and although it isn't perfect, it is functional and gives such a finished professional look to the bag. Thanks to the pattern designer for such a cute design! Crocheting the petals on was so fun and you can see I couldn't help but cram as many as I could onto the front!

Dansk, that is gorgeous!  Did you use 2 different colors?  The side of the bag looks brighter than the petals.  I love how full the petals are on the front.   And I agree, putting in the zipper sucked, but it makes the bag look so much nicer.

The side of the bag looks lighter because that's the side with the zipper. It was the closest I could find to match my yarn. The picture makes it look pinker than it actually is. I'm glad you like it!

I have also been eyeing that crochet me bag... as well as a few other projects on that site.. I love the simplicity of the book thong. So easy.
I did play around with the neck vine and made a few of them in different weight yarns.  I am allergic to lanolin in wool (talk about an itchy  rash!) so I couldn't use the yarn suggested by the designer on that one.  I did try some red heart ss and it came out nice - at least the vine part.  I didn't get to the berries or the pom poms.  I am not a big pom pom person so I was going to crochet up some flowers to attach to the little stem parts you are suppose to attach the pom poms to then leaves where the berries go.  I will work on that in the next few days and hopefully get some pics up.

Anyway.. the fleuri bag.. love the idea of the zipper.   I  think I see a trip to walmart for some zippers.  Figurs too since I saw that huge bag of zippers at the second hand store for like $2 and thought to myself what in the hell would I do with all those friggin zippers???!!  Well... now I know what I could have done with them... purses.  Well.  Live and learn and don't let a good opportunity slide by again!

I am thinking of making mine in a purple and red mix of some sort - no not those red hat lady style.  I have it in my head.  Maybe a fuschia and rich purple?  Well.  I will play with it in my head and see what I can get done.  I like the wrist strap.. so much more economical than rings...

craftydeb - a fuschia flower and dark purple background, like an eggplant color, sounds beautiful.  I like the wrist strap better than handles, because my bag came out so small that handles would have overwhelmed it.  Plus, I can't get the hang of crocheting around the rings.  One question, though - what are "red hat ladies" and what is "red hat lady style"?
