FO - Spring/Summer purse
So, I got the pattern from Easy Knitting magazine. The original pattern is white with pink and yellow flowers but I switched it up and made it black with pink and white flowers. I couldn't make the flowers as described if my life depended on it so I made these. I think I need to buy smaller dowels tomorrow...I think the ones I used are too big.

Anyway, here it is...

How cute!

Smaller dowels seem a good idea, Those seem like they'd hurt your hands!

I LOVE the flowers! They came out beautifully!

Thanks everyone! I'll be buying smaller dowels tonight. The ones I got were, indeed, too big.
