I got bored of making blankets (twin size- gets boring after you do like a lot lol).. and my mom wanted a new purse and she didnt really have the time to make once (she only got the chain done) so i thought i would surprise her and make her one  Wink She loved it! So did I, I kinda was hoping she wouldnt like it so i could keep it for myself.

The only bad thing is that I hate sewing pieces together so I did it in rounds, so there's a flat line of where i joined the rows, but i guess I didnt really care if i saw it lol besides alls you have to do is put that side against you and nobody would notice!! Grin

so here it is...

That is so nice, and my friends was just asking me to make her a purse and I think this would be the perfect style for her!  What stitch did you use/ pattern because I must make this for her!
Thanks!!

I LOVE how you made the handles also textured, it adds so much style !!! It really looks like a designer's purse to me !!! (especially in black !)

Very sharp purse.  You deleted the pattern???  I am a few weeks behind - we moved and I am still unboxing... is there any room for persuasion of sharing it?  I have a friend in Texas that would love this!  christmas is coming and I am not seeing "the one" until I saw yours!

I like this bag.  What type of yarn did you use?  Another way to minimize the line up the side is to work in rounds but join and turn at the end of each round.

What is going on?  There's a pattern then it's deleted then it's back then it's deleted again?  I mean, yes the bag is cute, but mostly I don't understand why a pattern would be dangled in front of crocheters like a carrot in front of a horse then taken away.  Twice.  This is what happened, right?  *shakes head in confusion*

yeah sorry about that. i realized that the pattern i posted didnt turn out.. so im still trying to figure out the kinks. not sure why it wont work. im doing the same thing i did with the first one. but i cant get the 2nd purse to turn out. so as soon as i fix my pattern, i'll respost it!  Smiley

Ok, I just wanted to make sure it wasn't just me having computer problems.  I'm not the most technologically savvy person I know, so I would believe that I just couldn't see the pattern.  I'll keep an eye on this for the fixed directions Wink
