When I asked my friend what to get her 8 year old for her birthday, she said anything girlie. So I bought a couple of small toys and decided to also make a purse. I had some fun yarn and thought it’d be cute to trim a small purse with it. I found a cute free pattern on the Bernat website. I modified it slightly just to make it smaller. Here is the finished purse.


I didn’t realize until after getting half of the trim on that the colors are very spring/Easter. That’s not a bad thing but I should have used more pink. Anyway, I thought it turned out cute even though I still have issues joining rounds. No matter what method I do, I always seem to add a stitch. That’s something I need to work on.
