|Originally, I added this strap cover to the design, but it was kind of over kill, so I took it off.|
|So you can get an idea of the size of this thing. It is pretty massive!|
- I took a canvas shopping bag and used it as the lining of my bag. Pre-sewed!
- I sewed the crochet portion to the canvas bag at the top of the bag, both plain sewing and whip stitches around the top of the bag.
- Rather than use the crocheted straps to cover the canvas straps, I used yarn to embroider designs into the canvas with my tapestry needle. None of the stitches is uniform. They are a tad haphazard and I really like it that way!
I'm so glad I tackled this bag. I've never done anything like it and I know my sister will like it when I give it to her for her birthday tomorrow!
