Craft from the Past – Reversible Lined Crochet Bag

Accessories and Embellishment is coming to a close and I'm frantically trying to finish some projects. So, trust me this week is going to have about twice as many posts as usual. (yay!) Today's post is actually a really old project (originally blogged here) that deserves a fresh spotlight.

I crocheted this bag using a recycled yarn. I started with the bottom of the bag and worked my way up in circles. Each handle is two braids twisted together. After crocheting, I fashioned the lining of the bag and gave it pleats around the rounded opening to provide shape. The intention is that the bag is reversible. I do really like the shape of the bag but have rarely used it. 

Crochet is probably the craft that I am least confident in. I learned to knit first and it was hard to figure out crochet. Once I get in the groove of it though, it's ok. Do you prefer knit over crochet or vice versa?
