    I checked out the purse. It looks great! :) I have to admit, back when I made this pattern, I didn't consider how difficult it would be to line it. I still haven't made one with a round bottom that was lined! LOL

  11. I guess I missed at the very beginning how many ch's you start with? It just goes right into 6 sc in loop. Can anyone help?

  12. @jantsmom: If you choose, you can ch 2 and do 6 sc in the 2nd ch from hook. I always use the adjustable loop, but it isn't really necessary. :)

  14. Emma, I am sorry it took me this long to respond, but just in case you are still interested. The pattern is called "Mother's Day Flower" by Lionbrand: http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/60020.html I liked that pattern so much I didn't bother making up my own. ;)
