This is my own pattern, but I made this purse to go to my grams funeral today, and I was up until midnight working on it for the past three days(hence the name "midnight purse").

If anyone would like to make one, I could come up with a pattern. I lined it also, and it's just big enough to fit my powder and liquid foundation, a tube of chap stick, a couple tissues and some candies.

Thanks cristy and knit-a-holic! :)

I forgot to mention something... If you notice how the bag curls like it does, I would definatly block it or do something to help it to stop curling.

That is just lovely, Jenelle! :inlove: I LOVE the white glittery yarn that you used. I'm really sorry to hear about your grandmother.
I'm going to try to make a purse like that someday. ;) Did you buy that yarn from Lion Brand? It's GORGEOUS!! :heart:

Did you buy that yarn from Lion Brand?

A friend sent me two skeins of it, and appearently it's a dicontinued yarn. :( I'll be looking out for other yarns simular to it.
