First ever crochet object- drawstring bag

I had fun making this drawstring bag in crochet for my May Swap partner- who is again in Portugal… I used a great yarn called "Portofino Paper" in Mandarine. Click the following link for a better picture of this type of yarn. It's a sort of cotton boucle with multicoloured paper twisted around it- it feels like paper too, when you've got your hook in it, but it's kind of pleasant to work with. I wonder how long it will take before I'm WIPping out clothes from the "Happy Hooker" book?

Once I actually dare to crochet, I hope to make something wearable like these tops that were featured at Catwalk Queen.
