I was thrilled to finish the vintage satchel I saw in Uncommon Crochet. I was a little nervous that I would make a mistake and it wouldn't come out right but I am so pleased with the outcome.
I used this great yarn for the gusset and strap. It was great!! It felted so nicely. I will definitely use it again.
This is the strap and gusset before I felted it. The outside stitches were removed after felting. They were used to leave holes in it to attach the strap to the bag.

The front of the bag. I love the stitch pattern.
The back of the bag and the flap. I love the stitches on the end.

I don't just crochet. During the summer I like to tackle projects that I don't get to during the school year. Usually my cabinets really need a desperate reorganization. I take some time each day and tackle either one cabinet, drawer or closet.
