Mystery Crochet Along #3 Purse Theme »
Type of item: Accessory
Style: Traditional, Casual, Cute
Lion 100% cotton, 4-ply worsted-weight yarn, color: Banana
What was your inspiration?
This was my first Mystery Crochet Along, and it was so much fun! I chose the yellow yarn because: 1) I hoped I would like the result enough to give the purse to a good friend for her birthday, and yellow is one of her favorite colors, and 2) it was the only cotton worsted weight yarn I had enough of in my stash.
What are you most proud of?
The lining was not part of the project pattern. I added it without instructions, just figured it out myself (I am a quilter, too, so sewing doesn't intimidate me).
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Try something new and exciting (and mysterious even)! You never know what you'll end up with, and it may knock your socks off.
