Fat Bottom Bag
This is the fat bottom bag from Happy Hooker which I finished a couple weeks ago. This is my first crochet FO. I also posted about this in my blog here.

Very cute. I crocheted one of these and half sewed in the lining. But I hate sewing and I'm not good at it. So it's been waiting to be done for over a year now. Yours looks great and so practical. Great first FO!

That is so cute! I really love your sewing job on the inside. I knitted a clutch and my sewing job was terrible. Great Job!

Thanks ladies! Well, there's a reason why my pictures are so small. Me and sewing aren't exactly buddies so there's no way I was gonna post a close-up on the lining!

Fat bottom bag
Beautiful job! I haven't crocheted in years but after seeing this bag, I'm tempted to get out those hooks again. Thanks for sharing.

I love it, I think I'm going to try that in red with a black lining. You've done a marvelous job, was it difficult sewing the lining in? did you do it by had or machine? I've never seen a lining to something I've knitted or crochet, I tend to avoid the pattern if it needs that!

I think red with black lining will look fantastic. I may have to steal your idea and make another one for myself. It may be possible to use the bag without a lining but the bag may stretch or small items like keys may poke out of the bag. Can be quite a bother, I suppose. I did the lining by hand with the help of this tutorial.
