I really liked a knit stitch that I saw here and made a purse using the same stitch.  It is a Christmas gift- problem is.. I kinda want to keep it for myself. 







Here's the bubble stitch for the first purse: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=175361.0

Thanks.. and I know how you feel about not wanting to give it away.  Cheesy   

I'm thinking about putting something in the top of the handles to keep them firm when carrying it.  Maybe a dowel rod?  A ruler?  A stick?   I'll think of something.  I put a zipper in the top (under the handle opening).

It's actually 100% acrylic!  Pretty thick yarn- only took 400 grams to make the purse.  However, it's probably a brand that can't be found in the states?  I bought it last winter, where I currently live (overseas) and the name of the yarn is: Big Ball by Art Fila Trading Co. (made in China) color: 04

I bought it in several different colorways.  I've made a hat for charity and it looked great- I should take a photo of it.

I also made a scarf using two different colorways and it looked just like those made w/ the NORO yarns. 

I love the way that it knits up and I wish that I had bought even more of the yarn.

I had forgotten about that noro purse!  I'd had every intention of making it too - thanks for bringing it back up!  I also love the yarn.  I'd keep it!   Grin

I had forgotten that I'd taken this photo of the other knits out of the same brand/type of yarn and you can see the purse in it's beginning stages.  The hat and scarves are for donation for charity.

And, thanks everyone-- and do think about knitting a purse out of the stitch it was super easy and a fast knit.  I knitted this just in a few days and it was off and on knitting.

I agree, it would be so hard to give that away!  Thanks for sharing this.  I love that stitch- must learn how to do that.  And, the color is awesome Smiley
