I made this with Paton's SWS yarn and then lined it with a matching kitty cat fabric.  The handle was ad libbed by looking at some of the other bags posted on here.  It's my first purse and was really pretty simple to do.   Smiley







The pics aren't the best.  The purse has held up fairly well.  I've been using it for almost a year now.  It does tend to pill some and the handle stretched out some.  Overall it's great and really roomy.  I did make it a little larger than the pattern in the book by adding more rows.  I just want to thank everyone on here for inspiring me to try new projects.  Kiss

Way to go.
