I finished it!!!

Woohoo I sewed on the flowers last night.

It’s not perfect, which means of course I’ll have to make another one, but it is yummy. Try as hard as might I could not get my bottom flat & my sides slope out too much, funny how the description of the bag matches my description!!!! :-)

If anyone can give me tips for a flat bottom & straighter sides I’d be grateful.

Here’s a link to the perfect original Lucy bag complete with tutorial: http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/crochet-bag.html

I don't have a flat bottom or straight sides either, but I do think your bag looks great!!
I love the colours you chose and I think the little flowers are adorable!!

Looks fabulous just the way it is Jan! Perhaps a smaller hook will give you the tigher more upright bag you were hoping for?
