Hello everyone. I just found this forum yesterday and joined! Great place.

The fabric purse is the first purse I have made. It's from Designer Style Handbags by Sherri Haab. I broke 3 needles making it and for me it was the hardest thing I've made but I was happy how it came out.

The second is my first and only knit purse. It's just a triangle over the handles. One thing I did not do was count my rows on the lash yarn so one side has an extra row of lash knitting than the other. I should have counted and wrote the number of rows down as they are impossible to count. Knit and learn!  Smiley

I love the fabric and the fun fur on the top adds a bit of flair. I love the lining in the second.

Your knit bag is so cute! I love how you matched the handles to the lining, both of which are very funky... How did you break the needles?
