Spring Green Fat Bottom Bag

Finished this one the other day. This time I was smart enough to put a cell phone pocket in the lining. These purses aren't large but they're roomy enough that I can't get to my cell phone fast enough. I also finished the lining of the Paton's SWS fat bottom bag. Not only is there a pocket for my cell phone but one for my iPod Nano as well. I got the fabric at JoAnn's at 40% off the other day. I think I paid 99 cents for 1/2 yard. I have enough left over for another project and I bought another print that is an eggplant purple with tan that I plan to line a tan bag. I'm not sure that it will be another fat bottom just yet.

Our cacti are blooming. These flowers are so pretty. I wish I had taken a picture when they were new.

This is Sophie's favorite spot. She loves to watch the kids walk home from school every day. She's waiting for them now.

All your bags look great. I went to the library and checked out the book, but don't know when I will get to try the pattern.

I certainly am not as fast as you with the bags and I think my "pattern" is just a bit different -- I am using a half double crochet and decided to use Red Heart as a test yarn as the cotton that I eventually want to use is a bit expensive. I have the bag part done, but now must go hunt up something for handles -- I will post a picture on my blog as soon as I am back from holiday, next week, I hope...

Hi Susan, I'm using the hdc stitch as well. I didn't even know what a herringbone hdc was, and now that I do, it's just too much work. There are a lot of people just doing the hdc and their bags all look great! Can't wait to see yours. I just love seeing how everyone interprets this pattern. So exciting!
