My Frogged Bag!

The other day, I decided to go through my stash and, *gasp*, give away some yarn. I have so many one skeins of yarn that I will never use, and figured my friend, and new crocheter, could go through it and use some for hats and such.
As I was going through this yarn I found a bag that I had frogged clear back in October. I was making it for our trip to Vegas, and had gotten to a point in the pattern that I just couldn't wrap my brain around. So I had thrown it in the chunky yarn tote and forgotten about it. What's funny is recently I have been really wanting to make myself a new bag, but just couldn't find the right pattern. When I found this *frogged* bag, I decided to make lemonade out of lemons, so I made a long strap in single crochet to attach to what I had finished on my bag.

I also did something that I have never done, and used something that I am actually scared of, lol! I made a liner for this bag out of a bit of fabric that I had bought from Wal-marts clearance section a long long time ago, using my sewing machine, *another gasp*. It's not the prettiest thing in the world, but works. I also have one of those kangaroo pouches that lets you can transfer things from purse to purse, so I didn't even need to sew in any pockets, which is a good thing!

Overall, I love the way it turned out. And I am so proud of myself for 1. making something work that I had given up on, and 2. stepping out of my comfort zone and making something with my sewing machine. If you would like to see what pattern I used, yarn and such go HERE to Ravelry and check it out.
