I decided to take a break from my Polymer Clay work and knit a new purse. The purse is knitted from strips of cotton Batik fabric cut on the bias. After making the basic purse, I take 4" strips of the fabric and tie them all over the purse. You can also add buttons, beads, charms, yarns, ribbon, whatever strikes your fancy. Then a lining is added. Best if it is in a lighter fabric so that you can see things inside your purse.
Here is my finished project.
