This is experimental bag...I must say although, it's funky I really like it! The blasted thing has oodles of ends to weave in tho...I still must line it and then it will be done! I think this may be the first of many funky bags.. I did learn a few things while making Gaia that I will carry over to the next ones.

Let me know what ya think!

I adore it! I love the "waves". If I may make a suggestion, I had a bag I hated the handles too (it was a drawstring). What I did was used leather lacing to make the drawstring around it, using a large bead as a closure, and then did straps just woven in the sides (see my it's the felted bucket bag. If you need me to explain better, email me at dsa0901 (at) juno (dot) com. It really made a difference and the straps could be used over my shoulder.

The bag took 2 days....of living and crocheting LOL! I think perhaps 5 hours total went into it!
Thanks for the comments! I have a tote in mind that will be very similar!
