So this is a bunch of firsts. First time doing trinity stitch, first time knitting a purse, first time lining a purse and first icord. Its not perfect, but I am proud of myself :) As a sewer first I am absolutely ashamed at how badly I did the lining though - hence the reason there are no pics of my lining work :rofl: I'll get better though! The yarn I used, in case anyone is wondering, is Plymouth Yukon.

Thanks guys!

This started out as a plan for a scarf so I just followed the basic trinity stitch patter, but I grew bored and wanted to get on with other projects so I decided to do a purse instead :rofl:

When I wanted to get the the decreases I used this pattern for guidance.

I wanted to stay in trinity stitch, but I found that with decreasing I just couldn't always get multiples of 3 stitches so I just did the flap in garter instead. I sewed on a little plastic button with green leaves and little pink flower, but it really doesn't pop with this yarn and pattern. It is really cute though :mrgreen:

What a cute purse!

Sewing linings for small-ish items is harder than a lot think. I'm thankful for my little plastic corner turner that came with my sewing machine. It really helps.

It really was harder than I thought it would be!!! But I am determined to try try again. My daughter now wants one in the the same color and another one in a burnt orange color so I'll have 2 more opportunities! :)
