I Got Bit by the Fat Bottom Bug!
So I finally gave in and made my very own Fat Bottom Bag.... LOVE IT! The pattern is so easy, great for sitting in front of the TV and only half paying attention. Thanks to other Ravelry user's projects I found a great tutorial for lining the bag. The pattern leaves so much room for personal taste and creativity that I don't think I've seen two that looked the same (unless it was planned that way, of course). The pattern was well written and easy to use!
My FBB is made with Paton's Decor wool/acrylic blend in black and lined with a silky polyester flower print fabric from JoAnn's. The handles are bamboo. I made a little tube of the lining fabric to decorate the front and added a button and flap closure. So cute! This one is for my friend Alison, but I have plans to make at least 2 more of these: another for a friend and one for ME! This is definitely one of the projects I'm most proud of.
