Oh the purse took at least 15 to 20 hours to complete and was so beautiful I wanted to keep it so bad. While it was just granny squares, the joins and border of the front and back panels had soooo many stitches. The inside is lined with an upcycled shirt. I once bought that shirt for a Janis Joplin costume at Halloween and was never able to fit into it comfortably (it was two sizes smaller than I was lol). I knew it had a purpose so I held onto it for about two years. This project was perfect. The pattern can be found on ravelry too. It's fortunately a free pattern so if you know how to crochet, you should check it out. Was a long, but fun project.
And I'm super glad that you liked everything!
