Of course, I think I may be short for this project so I'll have to go to another ACE Hardware until I find another roll.

I really wanted to do the fat bottom bag with it but it was really difficult to do the hhdc's and I wasn't in the mood to spend so much time on every single stitch. Oh well....................

Here's where I am on my purse, using some really funky colored twine from ACE Hardware. I've had to frog it about 4 times because this stuff is soooooooooo stiff and difficult to work with, but I think I'm over the hump.

The crazy color is what grabbed me. It's kind of a yellow with a touch of lime in it which makes the color kind of funky or yucky, depending on how you look at it.

I think that, instead of the ribbon, I'm going to thread something beaded through the eyelets. I've got some glass rods in this exact color, so I'm going to make some crazy beads, add some Swarovski's and make it really wild.(Don't you LOVE this Smilie?)

I'll keep you posted!

WOW WOW WOW. I love the colour! Won't it be difficult to sew up since it's so stiff? I can't wait to see what it looks like completed.

Heh. The smiley looks ridiculously happy.

I've been running around all day trying to find one more roll of this color. I haven't had any luck so far, but there are 2 more ACE Hardware stores near me that I'm going to try tomorrow. I wanted to make a few changes to the purse but, if I don't find more of this color, it won't happen.

As for the joining, this twine is surprisingly soft when it's crocheted. It's very flexible which, I hope, will make it easy to join.

I'll keep you posted!
