It wasn't even a close race this month. The handbag is the winner with all but two votes.
I know some people wanted to see this done in modern colors but I had brown and orange yarn so I thought I'd go with the classic colors.
The bag is done in two layers. The outside layer is done in brown and the inside in orange. Then, they're joined together, handles are added along with another bottom part and cardboard is glued inside the bottom to give it structure. That part should be interesting...
Next week there won't be a post but I'll be back on the 19th with the finished bag.
I'm from Minnesota and have been crocheting since 2003. I inherited a box full of Workbasket Magazines from my mother-in-law and became obsessed with the vintage patterns.
