These pictures are two sides of the same handbag. This purse has been floating around in my head for some time. I wanted to make it as a Christmas present for a family member. I grew up in Oregon, where tall pine trees grow and wildlife flourishes. I wanted this purse to reflect those memories.
The pine trees are taken from Nicky Epstein's book, "Knitted Embellishments." I love her books! Maybe next I'll try to create the ocean in a bag! Probably not. I don't have much light blue yarn.
This little sweater is for a little baby named Aria. She was born to my neice about a month ago.
