A spring bag on a winter's day.

Made a little crocheted purse yesterday.  The pattern is from Tangled Happy .  I used a super chunky yarn and a K sized hook, so my bag came out more adult sized rather than the small version she has on her blog.  I also opted to line mine.

Here is the bag next to a 2 liter soda bottle so you can get an idea of the size.

I made a liner out of remnant fabric and hand stitched it into the bag.  I doubled the liner, so that you would see the right side of the fabric whether you were looking into the bag or through the holes made from the shells.  I thought about adding a snap, but decided it didn't need it.

The flower is one of my favorite parts.  I used a little bit of water to dampen the flower so it would lay flat.  

Okay, so that is what I did yesterday!  I have a huge list of crochet projects I need to get back to, but this was a nice diversion. :)
