This was an easy project, and now all it needs are some crochet flowers. I used Peaches & Cream cotton instead, as it's nearly identical to Lion Cotton.

I found plastic bamboo handles on Ebay that look almost like the real thing, so it's totally washable. I have 3 more pairs, so that means 3 more Fat Bottoms!

I made a minor adjustment, er, mistake. I skimmed the pattern so quickly that I didn't notice the first "h" for "heringbone" until I was nearly done, so the entire bag is just "hdc" (half-double crochet), and then "hhdc" on the handle flaps. Though she's a close twin, and probably easier & faster to hook, I'm making another one properly, in something colorful.

Meilynne-  Your bag is gorgeous, too.  It looks perfect.  The white yarn with the "bamboo" handles is classic.

Don't you love it when mistakes actually end up being a good thing? It looks great.

I agree!  Looks great!  I love the fun handles w/ the plain bag.

I also agree that hdc is faster than hhdc.  I've been making that bag (many times just for fun and my dad thinks I'm nuts cause I keep ripping them out to try something new) and it seems like it would take about half the time if you just did those regular old hdc's.  And it looks almost the same anyway. 

Who cares how you did it; fantastic!

I'm down w/ a personal swap now and then!  PM me!

Haha I did the EXACT same thing - mistaking HHDC for HDC... we must have the same attention problems  Grin  But it's adorable nonetheless!
