I have loved making things that involve using my hands ever since I was a very small child. Things have evolved since then. Sewing, quilting, smocking, embroidery, spinning and of course knitting and machine knitting. I have been designing my own knitting patterns for many years now, but more seriously during the last 5 years. Since 2008, my husband and I have been living aboard our sailings vessel "ONEDAY". We left Bayfield ON in August 2008 and up to this time, we have spent our time cruising the Eastern Seaboard and the Bahamas. For a couple of months each year, we return to our home in Ontario where I love to teach knitting classes which I create around my own designs. I have paterns for sale on Craftsy, Knit Picks, Etsy and on Ravelry also. You can find me under my name, Linda Sellick or "ONEDAYDESIGNS".

This little purse is knit using the Modular method of knitting, which means that the modules are connected during the construction and no sewing is required later. Once the two sides have been completed, they are joined together using a three needle cast off. An I Cord cast off (instructions included) completes the top edge of the purse and the straps are two simple chains, twisted together. A decorative button and some pretty beads complete this fun little purse.
I created this design whilst sailing around the many beautiful Islands of the Bahamas on our sailboat "Oneday".
