    Rachel,

    I was watching someone on the “create” channel or maybe it was Martha Stewart but they lined their bag with different colors of electrical tape (sticky side to the fabric). They then sewed or crocheted the sides. This gave it a bit of waterproofing and helped it from stretching. You bag is really cute; going to try to make it next week.

    I admire your creativity. Had heart failure and starting over again. So I am excited to be creating little items. Thank you for sharing some very pretty designs.

    Rachel,

    As soon as I saw this pattern I thought of the purse that you made out of plarn. I think this would be a great bag to try in plarn for use as a reusable shopping bag – waterproof, durable.

    Pleasse help I am fairly new to crocheting and want to make this bag, but I am not understanding how the bottom of the bag is made.
    Any helpful tips to your pattern will be greatly appreciated as soon as you can.

    Thank you so much. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Hey I have a quick question. Anytime I make a bag it slowly stretches out to be massive! How do I fix that?

  7. Taylor says:

    I never thought of that! thanks =D

  8. Jarriel Campbell says:

    Hello!
    I have crocheted this bag about three times now. For some reason my color change areas are really obvious because, there is a jagged line with the colors clashing. How can I get rid of this uneven line?
