I just finished the shell of the bag and tried a new stiffening method using water and spray starch. It'll be interesting to see how that part turns out. At any rate, I stuffed the bag with plastic bags and also placed a plastic canvas piece in the bottom of the handbag to help keep the shape. The handles are already picked out. Tomorrow I will start the lining process as well as the front design for her pictures. The picture design is still twirling around in my head, but I know something will come. I just feel good knowing that the crocheted part is basically over.
