FO - Vintage Bubble Bag for Christmas present
I made this one with leftovers from clogs. I threw in a skein of Kureyon, too. you can see where the Kureyon is (the top section) because there's kind of a foggy grey fuzziness to that area.

thanks ladies :D ! I had a lot of fun picking out the yarns for this one, as well as actually following the pattern for the first time - sort of (I did the garter stitch top but my Kitchener stitch joining the handles to the bag is more like a "sew the living crap outta this join so it won't break apart" stitch.

KK - the Not-So VBB is more of a rectangle or 'banana' shape, and has a loop closure. here, let me take a look at the book:

VBB:
"This bubble bag reminds me of my mom's shopping bag - roomy and practical. The vintage look is very stylish right now, and although I used colors that are subtle, you can make yours wild and bold".

NSVBB:
"The sedate Vintage Bubble Bag is reinvented with funky yarns and different handles".

(err... jeez, that really helps describe the differences... sorry. )
