Thank you everyone! It didn't really take long at all since it's just one long rectangle folded in half. Even the beading wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. The lining on the other hand was a real pain!
Wow!! Great purse. The earth tone beads remind me of shells and are a perfect compliment to the natural colored yarn. Looks like a summer purse that would look great carried by a beach comber.
I picked the earth tone beads to go with the natural colored yarn just for the purpose of a summer bag. I enjoyed making the bag and happy with the results, so I might have to make more......one for each season. Sparkly beads for winter.
