So I found this material at Wal-mart that had just come in and I just HAD to buy it. :rollseyes: I ended up caving in and going back to get it the day before yesterday, and then I made the purse yesterday. My boyfriend was so impressed. Haha.
It's nothing complicated. I just cut two rectangles of fabric, and then I knit the handle with size 19 needles and a wool/acrylic yarn. It's not quite what I wanted, but I still really like it. I may end up using it for school when it starts, and then make another purse. I'm obsessed with making purses! Maybe I should try using a pattern? I have yet to ever use a pattern when sewing. Haha.
