This is the first knitted project I've done and I'm thinking about selling these purses at a crafts fair later this year.  Let me know what you think and if  you think they'd sell.  Thanks.

I think they'll sell too.  I made one alot like that for a friend's birthday.  Everyone comments on how nice it is.  Love your flowers too by the way.  Crocheted?

This is really cute, but I'd worry about the stretchiness of the fabric.  I once knit a bag in a similar weight that refused to felt since it wasn't a high enough percentage of wool.  As a result, it was too stretchy to be of use.  The design on this is good, but you should either look into doing a tighter (and less stretchy) knit, or into felting the fabric so it won't lose its shape when you put stuff in it.  That, or just line it with sturdy fabric.  Otherwise, good job!  I love the flower design.

omg
I LOVE that...
but like thelotusblue said, I'd be worried about it stretching
Maybe if you lined it, with some non-stretchy material?
just a thought Smiley
I would deff want to buy it..if it wasn't white.  me and white have issues with dirt:D  it'd be way cute in other colors too....
I only WISH my first knitting project had turned out so nice.

I am in agreement with thelotusblue and loserchick88, felting or lining the bag would make it more me more interested in buying.

that is a great and adventurous first knitting project!  Congrats

 I made one like that and can't use it because everything pokes through it!  But I am planning on lining it someday.  Lining should be pretty easy to do, I'm just too lazy to do mine so it just sits in a closet. 

I really like the flowers, also.  I think they would sell, good luck!

Is it so bad, then, to be misunderstood? Pythagoras was misunderstood, and Socrates, and Jesus, and Luther, and Copernicus, and Galileo, and Newton, and every pure and wise spirit that ever took flesh. To be great is to be misunderstood.

Thanks for all the feedback.  I lined the purse and it really helps.
