Fat Bottom Bag

About a week ago I decided to make my first crocheted bag. I decided to make the Fat Bottom Bag in the Happy Hooker Stitch n' Bitch book by Debbie Stoller. The pattern called for Lion Brand's Cotton...but I ended up buying Lion Brand's Cottonease in punch.

After picking out the perfect yarn, I had to find the pefect fabric to line the bag. I found this...

Isn't it just perfect? It matches almost perfectly. Last night, I measured the fabric and pinned the lining in the bag. Tonight I will attempt to sew in the lining. I have not picked up a needle and thread since 7th grade home economics class. My mom gave me a refresher course on the whip stitch. We shall see what happens.

I signed up for Summer Cotton Swap at Crochetville. I have a super partner from Florida. The requirement for the swap is to buy $25 worth of cotton or cotton blends and send it to our partner by August 8th. I purchased some yummy yarns and packed up the package and sent it out this past Friday. I added some extra goodies in the package...but I can't reveal those quite yet. I am so excited to receive my package. I am eagerly awaiting and stalking the postman daily!!!!!
