The pattern is called Fat Bottom Bag (FBB) and it’s from the book Stitch ‘n bitch Crochet: The Happy Hooker. It’s made with Bernat Satin in the color Bordeaux held with a strand of Patons Brillant in Beautiful Burgundy. I had picked up the Patons awhile ago on clearance for $1, normally priced at $4.99. I was thinking of using it for an H bag and then got the idea to use it for the FBB. I was delighted when I was able to perfectly match it to another color and I adore the fabric I found to line it. I need to do a closure of some kind. I haven’t decided what yet. And the handles are cording that’s found with the other drapery items. But I wanted something that would hang from my shoulder and everything else I found just wasn’t right.
J had to help display my beautiful new bag too. Isn’t he cute?
