Leaf Purse

The Charlotte Purls are having a Bag KCAL, so here is my project:

Pattern: My own design
Yarn: Patons Classic Wool, and Knit Picks Wool of the Andes
Needle size: US9

I started it by hand at the bottom, and then worked in the round towards the top. A few days after I started it, I got a Bond Sweater Machine, so I finished it up using the machine. It only took me 20 minutes to finish it! I then felted it, and needle-felted swirls and leaves on it. The handle is a leather handle from Homestead Heirlooms, and so is the leather leaves and acorn.

I ran out of tan yarn and had to finish up using grey, but you can’t really notice it in person. Overall, I’m very happy with it. My Pouchee (I love this thing!) fits inside, with enough extra room for a small knitting project as well.
