Rosa med krusseduller
I thought I already had posted pictures of this purse, but I guess not. It was finished last week, and is made from one skein Lambs Pride. This yarn just has a lot of great colors. It also felt well.
The swirls are embroidered on, make sure to keep it loose like the knitting stitches. When I got it in the shape I liked, I stuffed it and tied a little yarn loosely around it, to make sure it stayed that way. At this point I still hadn't decided how it would look, I had knitted an unattached strap, and a shorter loop, so that I could close it if I wanted to, using a crochet button. I sewed a blanket stitch around the edge, and crochet in the stitches, one round.
It got lined with a hot pink lining, and it is ready for a stroll at the mall.
