Fantastic!  Beautiful purse.  Love the idea! I love knitted bags but I need the structure/compartments of my giant granny bags- so I might steal your idea at some point...

Thanks, everyone!  Usually when I make something I have to distance myself from it for a few days before I decide it looks okay and I like it after all, but this one was instant love.  Smiley

 How did you stitch the knitting on the bag?  

First I cut the body of the purse off.   I made sure the lining was pulled outside of the bag so I wouldn't accidentally cut it.  So all I had left was the top bit you see in the pictures, with the lining still attached and disembodied handles.

Then I pinned the knitted fabric in-between the lining and the "leather" bit and did a modified whip stitch by hand.  If you look closely on the picture of the lining you can see my hand stitches. 

Finally I attached the handles to the body of the bag using yarn.  It's attached to the lining so it won't pull the knitted fabric out of shape.

Hope that made sense.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

Brilliant idea! I love the original pattern but like you, didn't want to carry around pointy sticks that would eventually end up poking me, especially on public transit. I was thinking of using dowels but this idea is brilliant... may just have to borrow your idea! Grin
