Purse

I found this fabulous pattern on lionbrand.com/patterns, and thought I would have to make it. It is quick and easy and I will be making more for gifts in different colours.. I think it would look great in a black/silver yarn.......
I made the purse in 2 strands of 4ply. It was a test to see if I like it or not, Now I will be using Bendigo cotton in 8ply..

That purse is so pretty. Did you line it and what size did it turn out ? You do lovely work.

Thankyou Dorothy, no I haven't lined the bag as yet , the purse it self measures 12" with the flap about 17".
So easy too make , I thought it would make a lovely makeup purse.
What do you think ? :))

Yes, a make-up purse would be nice. You could use that nylon shower curtain fabric to line it. Its bigger than I imagined by the picture. Are those measurements before assembly or after?

The purse measures 7"across and 6" deep....... Thanks for the tip on the lining, that would be washable too..:)
