I have eventuality completed my red bag. Pattern from "Crochet Today" march/April 2010.
I used Patons cotton blend, 2 ready made straps.
I lined the bag with a quilt print and inserted a zip.
I am really pleased with the completed bag.
Now I think a navy bag next.....
Gorgeous bag - I really love the lining. I'm in the process of making a bag. Got the handles last week so need to get on and finish it.
