Not having ever owned a pretty bag, I decided to make one....and then I made two :)
I first crocheted the outside and then sewed the lining.
Googs made himself a bed to keep me company while I sewed.
It was the first time that I had ever sewn a zip so I was really chuffed :)
Here are the finished bags. I think that the flowing ribbons might be a little too flouncy for me, I might crochet a flower or something to go on the front.
