I decided to try knitting a cabled purse. It was my first attempt at cabling. I was surprised how easy it was. I finished this purse very quickly. It ended up shorter than the one pictured on the pattern. I think I used too thick of yarn. I'm in the process of making another one with less chunky yarn. The pattern is from Knit Pick's website http://www.KnitPicks.com It's called Chunky Cable Handbag. I purchased the handle at WalMart. It was even on sale! The butterfly pin is also from WalMart, and also on sale.
I made a second gray striped felted bag. Here it is before I felted it in the washing machine.
This picture is of the bag after felting. I want to do some kind of needle-felted trim on this bag too.
