OMG! I finished a bag!! March 5, 2008

I never finish bags!!  I lose interest.  So sue me.  But the rose i crocheted for Madaleine was about to get eaten/destroyed by the kitties, so i crocheted a cute little bag and sewed the flower on it~ and she loves it!

002-6.jpg  I used the little bikini bag from the stitch n bitch book as a starting point.  Because i used a G hook instead of their D hook, i only went up to 30 or 36 sc’s for the bottom, and i did about 15-20 rounds of even dc instead of 8,  and as you can see i used my flower scarf pattern for the ties. 

Here is a close-up of the flowers i sewed on:

So, who’s ready for more internet finds?!!

Here is a tiny easter basket thingy:
