A Crochet Bag - Second edition

Do you remember a while ago I started a crochet bag ??
Hmmmm, yes well, I started all enthusiastically and took said piece to work to do some at lunch times and as it grew it seemed like it was more like a hat or a car seat cover .......himself said it loooked like 'one of those hats the beatniks wear at music festivals'...great..Not deterred,I carried on for a while. After spending a few evenings and lunches madly hooking away I did actually think,yep,it is definitely not looking much like a bag and decided to send it to bag heaven..I also thought that I was using too big a hook and too thick wool.So,back I went to Attic 24 to have a look again at the lovely Lucy's blog to see exactly what hers was like and get some more inspiration.
So,over the last couple of weeks,I ordered some more 'cottony ' wool and started again using a smaller hook and I actually think that this looks a tad more like a bag ......what d'you think ? a bit more like a bag now ? I've had the worst cold over the weekend so in between blowing my nose and sneezing and generally feeling sorry for myself I've managed to nearly finish it. I made the handles last night so now it's just a case of sewing all the ends in ...
I made a couple of cards yesterday for my cousin's Anniversary and a friend's birthday.I also made another card but can't blog it yet as It's not her birthday yet so will show it later on in the week.Hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend..Off to find the tissues....

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and leaving a nice note. I think the revised edition of your bag is really cute and colorful. Isn't crochet the greatest!
