:woot:I'm normally a knitter, because crochet makes my hand hurt, but I became nearly obsessed with this one! I HAD to have it! It's on my Ravelry project page (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Arielluria/nordstrom-crochet-hobo-bag) for pattern link, bookmarking and for more pics - if you don't have Ravelry, you can get the pattern on this blog (http://shortylamcrochet.blogspot.com/2006/11/nordstrom-hobo-bag.html). The yarn is Yarnbee's Dreamy Chenille and it's WONDERFULLY soft!

I double stranded the starting chain which is at the bottom of the bag & double lined the inside with contrasting fabric.

What cute pups!

Thanks for the link, my DDIL has been longing for one, but won't pay the Nordstrom's price.

(I guess that's why some people have money, they don't spend it. ;) )

(I guess that's why some people have money, they don't spend it. ;) )It's also wiser and more satisfying to make it yourself ;):hug:

It turned out beautiful! I've made a couple of those in the past too. It's a very satisfying project. In fact, I may need to make myself a summer purse like that. Hmmmm, ....

Thanks. The thing about this yarn is that it's SOOOOOOOOO soft, I just keep wanting to caress the purse :teehee:

That purse is gorgeous! Makes me want to learn to crochet more than a row LOL

I think it's easier to learn crochet than knit, so go for it! Post question here if you get stuck.
