Hand Knitted Purse

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.
