I loved the look of the Knitting Needle Bag [available free here http://www.knittingdaily.com/freepatterns/bags/?patternsandposts=1&showposts=1&organizeby=date&skilllevels=all], but I thought it would be uncomfortable to carry around a purse with pointy needles on the end.  Plus, I wanted a purse that could stand up to everything I cram in there.  When I saw a faux-croc purse on clearance at a local store, inspiration hit and here you have it:



I was fortunate that the pattern fit the frame as-is, no tweaking needed!  I used two skeins of Lamb's Pride Bulky, just knit one side until I got to the end of the skein, then repeated for the other side.  Stash-busting is a beautiful thing.

Here's everything I cram in my purse (minus the odd scraps of paper and receipts that eventually work their way in) :



And here it is all full and zipped up:




Thanks for looking!

I love it!  I also liked the pattern of the knit portion, but wasn't in love with the knitting needle handles.  Great job!
