I completed this a few hours ago, and I have to say it was a last minute gift because I started on Thursday and had to be done by Sunday! :teehee: It's for a bridal shower. I couldn't decide what to make, especially since she's 23. At first I was going to make a bra and panties set from Knitty, but them I procrastinated and didn't have enough time, so I thought I would make dishclothes. But I finally checked this book out of the library and thought it would be perfect. What do you think?

Me copying the cover of the book :teehee: . Sorry the picture is a little wacky, I usually take pics in natural light.

The bag was really cheap, in total I spent about $5 or 6, since I used Simply Soft. I think I'll be making this again sometime! :happydance:

It was that adorable bag and picture on the cover of the book that sold me on buying that book. Would you believe I have yet to make the bag. Now that I've seen yours, I'm inspired. You did a great job. :thumbsup:

I love it... I have that book and started on the bag and never completed it. I think you inspired me to get it done! Beautiful job and the lining looks lovely.
