FO: Brea Bag - Updated pics
Okay everybody, here is the finished Brea Bag. I finished sewing it up over the weekend, but I had to get a little help with the the fastener and find a nice button. As I was finishing it, I realized that the handle is a little off - it just doesn't hang quite right and it twists the flaps that hold it on. But, oh well. I think once I put a few things in it it'll be ok. Now, if only I knew how to line it....

O.k. I'm back, I did find the website
go to
www.helloknitty.com

and click on "learn to knit" and then on the left side of the page, click on "lining bag"
good luck if you decide to do it!
