my boyfriend and i play WoW and my main character is a blood elf warlock.  what better way to show off my pride than a purse?

this project killed my hands and wrists, but it was a labor of love.  i can't believe how good it turned out, especially since i made up the pattern as i went along.  if anyone is interested, i'll post the pattern.  i wrote it down somewhere.

the strap stretched a LOT, so i had to make some repairs/alterations a few times.  it's the perfect fit now.  i used sugar n' cream 100% cotton yarn.  part of the strap is showing some wear and tear now, but i think i can fix it.  i used cotton because i thought it would be sturdier.  oh well.  Undecided

on with the pics!



detail of the front.  i used sugar n' cream cotton yarn to back stitch the lettering.




the purse showing a little strap.  the strap is long enough to be worn across the body for extra safety.  who wouldn't want to steal a sweet purse like this?  Roll Eyes




the top and inside.  this was my first time ever installing a zipper and it came out great.  i crocheted the top to fit the zipper perfectly.  the inside is just a fat quarter in a cool pattern that looked kinda like blood.  it's not as bright as the pic shows.


FOR THE HORDE!!!

A dwarf priest??  Grin  Cute idea!  Unfortunately, I'd have to put on about three different things on it: undead priest,  blood elf hunter, and tauran druid.  Wink

Hee... cute!

If you want to stop the stretching on the strap, you can try a single crochet along the long edges. It helps it to not stretch as much (if at all).

Envy...my main is a Blood Elf Warlock, too... I love your idea and the purse turned out great! I'm kinda diggin' my sweet new Death Knight and I might have to steal your idea and make a blood spec DK one. Maybe.

Oh yes: FOR THE HORDE!!!!

thanks for the suggestion, but i did do that when i first made the strap to give it a more finished look.  i'm wondering if it was my tension or my yarn choice.  or even all the crap i carry around in it lol.  the straps are pretty sturdy to hold all of that.   Cheesy

Lining the strap (in a non-stretchy material of course) is a sure way to keep it from stretching too.  With a strap that long, it wouldn't be my favorite option, to be sure...  Smiley
