You're full of flaws, but I love you!

As machines become more and more efficient and perfect, so it will become clear that imperfection is the greatness of man.

Ernst Fischer
(1899-1972, Austrian editor, poet, critic)

My first ever crochet project (Lucy and Nina -inspired)!

WOW!! Well done!! I am so impressed. You did that?!?! Very nice job :) And as for any imperfections, that's what personalizes it...makes it uniquely yours :)

Your bag is SUPER!! and all the colours go together well. I particularly like the embroidered base and straps and your lining. The flowers really add to it and I think you are very clever!!

Gosh that's amazing for a first project. I love it and the colours are beautiful. What a good idea to have a fabric base and handles too. I feel inspired to see if I can make a similar one now! That's one of the joys of blogging isn't it?

Have a lovely weekend.

Brilliant bag! I'm so impressed - what a fantastic first crochet project.

I love the colours you've used. I've seen a few of these types of bags on various blogs and I think it's great how, despite using the same basic pattern, they all turn out so differently. I like the way your colours change through the rows too.
