Hey, I have a question for anyone who has made this bag.  I was thinking about making it with some yarn I picked up recently, Artful Yarns Serenade.  It's a worsted weight, 70% pima cotton/30% angora yarn in a variegated lilac and brown color.  I tried out the hhdc stitch and loved the way it looked with the yarn, but I'm concerned that either a) the yarn will be too delicate for the project, or b) making a purse out of this super soft yarn will be a waste.  Anyone who has done this project have any input?  Thanks!

I have made a few of these bags.  I think if you line it, it would be fine.  The main concern I always have with bags is that the yarn will stretch.  The only portion that may present a problem is where the handle flap attaches to the handle, it tends to stretch.  You could try to find a "tougher" yarn that coordinates well to do that portion.  I have been considering doing that.

I love the long-handled variations on this bag!  Yours looks great with the shimmery yarn and the top closure.   

I agree that this purse calls for tougher yarn; but you can minimize the stretch by making sure that the lining is a tad smaller than the outer bag, and using a sturdy fabric (not too stiff, though).
