It's Chloe's birthday! She likes green, and this bag is really green. It's the Exchange Bag pattern from SnB's Happy Hooker.
The "yarn" is Hilos La Espiga Nylon no. 18, which is really a nylon cord that is a killer to work with, but the results were worth it.
I'm a little embarrassed at how long it took me to complete this project (see start). Actually, the crochet did not take all that long, but I kept putting off adding the lining because I am not much of a seamstress. While procrastinating, I took my sewing machine in for a tune-up, which was a good thing, but then wound up handsewing the lining.
The photo doesn't do much justice to the lining - it actually looks much better than this, adds a touch of class to a casual bag.
