Here's my latest, I've gotten zillions of complimets on it!  My only gripe is that I wish I had stained the dowels a darker color, a dark wood pointing out at the ends with the cream yarn and burgundy bow would have looked so nice!

I used a little magnetic closure that I found at the craft store.  Works nice.  I was also able to machine-sew my lining in...made life much easier.

I have some round bamboo hadles, so a handled variation out of a more spring-like fabric is next on the list!

Here is my version.

Well I did not mean to make an exact copy of MN's handbag. I needed a matching purse for a top I made for my niece. I made the bag in a different shape (it is a straight rectangle though) and did not use cabled pattern - I used the same pattern as I used for the top.

I have a pattern in Italian and a pattern in Russian. Which one would you prefer? But there are two charts in it, you might be able to figure out without being able to read.
