Leaves necklace this season-spanning drawstring purse. Large enough to carry today's essentials: cellphone, id, pen, makeup, toiletries, but small and light, it may be made smaller by felting.
Unfelted, it measures 8.5" wide by 6.5" high. The straps were made 4 feet long so the bag may hang across the body. You may want them shorter, or explore other options for straps.
Many color combinations will work to evoke each season and adorn any occasion.
It has a texture band across the middle that could function as a color band accent as well as a textural one.
From campus to concert, from work to play, this design is ready to go your way.

not critical for this project
Long, long ago, far, far away, when the subway cost a quarter and the corner drugstore was also an ice cream parlor where a little girl sipped vanilla egg creams, her mother, who made her wonderful clothes, showed her how to crochet. Her father taught her how to solder and make a tuner.
