New Autumn Purse for the Church Bazaar

I had this camouflage yarn in acrylic that I thought might make a nice tight body for an Autumn colored purse. It did, except I ran out of it! So, I added black Wool-Ease on each end to finish up. It isn't as thick, so the weave was not as tight. However, it did turn out nicely.

I wanted it washable, so realized that I could not hook the handles on permanently. Therefore I used button flaps on the inside to that should the new owner decide to change handles, it would be very easy. I made a Japanese type knot and half of a butterfly closure to the middle could close easily. I found it holds three skeins of Vanna's Choice yarn quite nicely!

The second photo shows that it isn't a large purse, but large enough. I did not line it, so it would not be good to carry bobby pins or little pens around, but is a good purse to toss in larger items for a quick trip to church or the store.

Potholders Again

Still making these for church. Found out the bazaar won't be until December. Why so late???? Anyhoooo, I'm showing two of each to show how bad my camera is taking color photos. The first ones actually are pretty true to color - so only am showing the front and back.....they are different! This is the double potholder that my SIL told me how to make and they are pretty easy ... I just have to be careful not to
get them too small.
