bag that is…

I actually finished this project a few weeks ago. I’m not one for finishing, seaming, or in this case lining projects. Fortunately, my aunt who is in town visiting for a couple of weeks is an avid sewer. Introducing my finished FBB! In case you didn’t already know, the pattern comes from Debbie Stoller’s Happy Hooker book.

Yarn: Berroco Suede, 2 skeins
Hook: Size I, Susan Bates
Time to finish crocheting: 1 week in May

Fat Bottom Bag outside
Here is my FBB in the sunlight. I like this picture the best.

Here it is in indoor light.
And here’s a picture of the lining. I chose blue cause I wanted something very unexpected for this bag.
Blue lining

Thanks to my aunt for making this FO possible. I was actually thinking of taking this project to a tailor to get it finished. The handles are a la Michael’s. They have tons of bag handles and are very reasonably priced. If I had it to do all over again, I’d use “bamboo” handles to match the color better.

Thanks for looking:)



  1. Cute!

  2. Very cool! Did you sew the lining in with a machine, or by hand?

  5. Nice job on the bag. I like the extra pocket she made in the lining.

  7. Love the bag, I have some unused Berrocco suede around that never got made into a poncho. I will put it on my to do list!
