Black and White Purse

I wanted a new purse (and then needed one). So I made this one. I always wanted a black and white purse, but never got around to making one.

PATTERN: the pattern is from the Big Book of Dishclothes. Since I started it a month ago and finished the sides, I misplaced the book since then, sorry about that. But it's one of those and easy to find as it's a two color pattern and you'll reconize it from these photos (if someone knows, please post, I will edit or comment later if I find it).
Cell phone holder: just made up using the same pattern stitch, it's a bit different beacuse it's done in rounds.

YARN: Red Heart Super Saver Worsted Weight Yarn. I had plenty left over too.
HOOK: I think a size H, but I can't rememer (as I said I finished the crocheting last month).
LINING: A cotton fabric I had. I folded it and it made pockets!

This first photo shows the lining over the purse. This is the bottom of the lining. I decided since it fits my Netbook I would need a double stitch on there. I did a straight stitch and then a diagnol stitch.

Second photo. This purse is big enough to fit my Netbook in! It's in the back in the black and white flower cozy I bought (I bought one instead of using the one I made because this one had a zipper). Yes my wallet is a zebra stripe, matched my last purse lining. And it matches this purse too.

Entire purse. You'll see that the straps I made extra study. I did a 2 row sc and then I chained a long length (125) and weaved it through the sc.

I'm the sort of hombre who enjoys to try new things. Currently I am constructing my private photovoltaic panels. I'm making it all by myself without the help of my staff. I am using the net as the only way to acheive this. I discovered a truly amazing website that explains how to build solar panels and wind generators. The web site explains all the steps involved in solar panel construction.

I am not exactly sure about how correct the info given there iz. If some experts over here who have experience with these things can have a look and give your feedback in the site it would be awesome and I'd extremely appreciate it, cauze I extremely would love to try [url=]solar panel construction[/url].

Thanks for reading this. U guys are the best.
