I made this purse for my sister for Christmas several months ago, and just last week lined it and added the embellishments.  I decided I should take some pictures before I wrapped it up, and decided I should share those here while I was at it!



I used some kind of generic brown yarn that I found in my stash, and Wool-Ease (I think..) for the flowers Smiley



The lining was made from the outer pouch thing that my new sheets came in!  The colors were perfect and it was almost the right shape and size already, so it made lining a little bit easier.



I totally made up the pattern as I went.  I made a rectangle base and crocheted up the sides in all sc.  I love the handles and its fat little bottom!





Also, pardon the mess in my kitchen...I wrecked my car on Friday and I haven't felt like cleaning!

C&C welcome! Smiley

This is cute. I really like that you made it with yarn in your stash.
The lining matches perfectly. Good Job!

Thanks everybody!!  I took a Christmas Craftster Hiatus after working on stuff for countless hours, and I come back to such sweet comments..it's like Christmas again!  Grin My sister FLIPPED OUT and loved it..she crochets too, so she knew how long it took and how she's supposed to appreciate it Smiley

I LOVE it!  I've been itching to make a purse.  Never thought to use those sheet bags for a liner.  And I got new sheets for Christmas- perfect!  I was actually wondering what I could reuse the bag for.  Awesome!  Your sister is very lucky- I'd love to unwrap something like that!!!!!!!
