So, Julia saw my first crocheted bag and immediately said, "I want one!" Here it is:
She picked out the colors herself -- "harvest gold," as she calls it, on the bottom, and a soft orange for the body. She also wanted a long strap; it can go diagonally across her chest also.
She liked the open-work in the middle, and she wanted a drawstring around the top. And then we decided to add a flower too. Here's the flower:
I thought the drawstring worked especially well. I like using an "accent" color. This photo is washed out, though. The orange is richer than that.
I took some earlier shots inside, but they were rather dark. Still, here's one that shows the structure of the bag well.
