I created this purse a few months back for fun. i got my idea in the hardware store where i also collected all my materials.. i made it out of flagging tape which is normally used on construction sites to mark where something important is or should got (like a pipe). i knit this on US size 15 needles.
oh and i decided to call it hardware bonanza because it is made up of hardware parts and things of that sort.


now if you ever find the need to knit flagging tape i have one word of caution..it kind of smells funny and after a while of knitting on it i would start getting a head ache and stop...just so you know...

I hope you all like my purse
thanks for looking

I just realized that it was entered. I thought I was still on the knitting board. I'm such a dork. Awesome idea. I love that it's bright orange.
