Over a year ago I bought these wooden bead handles on sale and they've been on my mind ever since but I've just had to much on my mind to really make something of it. Then all of a sudden I found some old cotton yarn lying around and decided it was time. So I made a purse and used the handles and my 16-year old fell in love with it on the spot and confiscated it.
I did have time to take some pics though:

Thanks for looking.

I'd confiscate it too if I had any chance Smiley Smiley The handle goes great with the purse, and gives the purse that special highlight. Lovely bag!
