Notes

I’ve been agonizing all afternoon. I really want to make a new bag this weekend and I’ve narrowed the field to 3. I finally decided I’m going to start this one first and see how it goes.

The bag itself is done and I’m now working on shoulder straps. I’ve frogged them once and now i’m going to bed. I ended up choosing black for the single crochet rows and a variegated by Pisgah called Cherry Pinks for the shell rows. It looks AWESOME!

I love this bag, but if and when I make it again, I’ll make the bottom more oval than round. It is a terrific pattern and I’d highly recommend it for anyone, even a beginner.
