YAY!

I have finally finished my first crochet bag, thanks to Lucy's (attic24) fabulous instructions. It didn't take nearly as long as I had thought it would, and also it was a real doddle. Thank you Lucy, couldn't have done it without you. It was a real pleasure making this, and it is now sitting on the armchair, filled with all my deliciously pink and fluffety mohair yarns.

This is the front of the bag -


And this is the back of the bag -


I am really quite happy with the way it has turned out, and I'll treasure it for many years to come. It will look great in France, sitting in a corner of the settee, which will be adorned with the granny square blanket, of course.

Oh!!!Oh!!!!! It looks so beautiful!
I especially like the extra flowers and leaves on the front, i think if I made another bag I would def go more with flowers and leaves.
Thanks for sharing, i love it!

Looks great Liz - you've added loads of bits and bobs since I saw it the other day. Hmph, I want to make one now.

And, Lucy of Attic24 has found us! I've tried so many times to post on her blog and it won't let me. So, here's a thanks to Lucy for her inspiration and her lovely ideas as well as sharing her tutorials with us.
