Chloe's Birthday Bag

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.
