I finished my purse!
Hi everyone
I just finished the purse I was making for my best friend Judy for Christmas. She's a cute redhead and autumn colors are best for her.
I found the purse pattern in a book I bought from KnitPicks, I found these great little beads from ebeads on line (had a good selection of beads that go onto yarn) then used two scarves I found at Target - just the right match for the inside lining and a bit around the edge.
Fun to make. Circle needle made it go fast!
Regards

Funky purse. Synergism at work in a totally fab way.
