The opening of the purse is at the back.

More FO pics here.
WIP pics here and here.

The pattern is from the same book as the llama purse and fish purse, Andean Folk Knits by Marcia Lewandowski.

Those purses look so complex!  So many colour changes and different pieces.  I would never have the patience to do it, but yours are lovely!  I've been impressed by the others as well, but this one is the coolest yet!

Thanks, everyone.  The projects are small and the fair isle is actually quite easy, following the great Elizabeth Zimmermann's rule of no more than 2 colours per row.  The patterns also follow the EZ rule of designing with as few seams as possible.

Just so everyone knows, this book is freaking awesome.  I just got it in the mail today.  I ordered it after seeing the llama and fish.

Great job on the doll purse, that's one of my favorites.

Thanks!  For the doll purse, I started making the Campesino bag, which has two pant legs instead of a skirt, but then changed it to a wide skirt so that it's more like the Pachamama purse.  I did this because I like the Pachamama purse better than the Campesino bag, but dislike the way it opens (the opening is at the front of the neck, i.e. in the front collar of dress; to close it up, you gather the front and tie it).  For the Campesino bag, the opening is a slit at the back between the shoulders, which I think looks  tidier.

Yes, the llama purse is in the book - that particular pattern is the reason I bought it!  When I carry the llama purse, someone always stops me to admire it, and if that person happens to be a knitter, you can clearly see the "I want!" expression in her face.   Grin
