My Bag is almost Finished!!!

At least the crochet part of it....
I'm of the last round of the front and now I just have to sew together the front and back...
Here's the front, you can see my yarn coming out in the middle of the row... sooooo beautiful scales!! the fabric is thick and dense, but not stiff, it just have body and feels great and I definetly LOVE the way it looks... it measures like 10x9in or so.
Here's the back... sorry, it's such a bad picture, and it looks smaller than the front, but that is because the front will have half scale extra on each side... I don't know how to explain it, it'll be clearer when I finish it.
But don't worry about that bad and crapy picture!!!  here's a great one with the close-up of the stitch for the back!!!!
Don't you love that texture???? I think it's called scallop stitch and I found it in the stitches resources at LionBrand page.
And here you can see front and back together....
So I still have to do the sewing, find the right lining and handle!!! I went to Hobby Lobby and I saw several fabrics that I could like for this, but not one handle! today a friend told me that I can find handles at JoAnn Fabrics... I think I'll have to go there... it's on the other side of town, so it'll have to wait till the weekend when MG can go with me...

We are supposed to get a snow storm soon today that will last 2 days...

That's my bag progress... and just really quick before I head to my couch and TV for a bit of hooking before MG comes from work:::
That's the slipper I'm making for one of my best friends... mmm I can't remember if I told you or not...  two weeks ago this friend called me and asked me for a pair of slippers because "the kitchen floor is too cold"... so this is the first one... made in Vanna's Choice... and I have to make the pair for it AND another pair!!! my best friends are twins!!! so I'll make 2 pairs and send them with some treats...

Stay warm!
See you soon!
