Today I want to share with you the black purse that I knitted recently. I made it for a friend and I am quite happy with the way it has turned out. Below I will have how I made it and the limitations of the purse.
How I Made It
The entire purse is made of garter stitch. I had 30 stitches on my needle and knitted approximately 96 rows. The lid of the purse is approximately an inch down.
To attach the lid to the actual purse I used small, metal press studs. I sewed them onto the wool using black thread so it can not be seen from the outside.
I made the love heart using the same video I used in the baby booties I made recently. The link to the video that I used is down below. It is really good video to learn how to make the hearts.
Limitations of my Purse
The limitation of my purse is the press studs. The wool pulled when opening and closing the purse. Next time I think I am going to knit a button hole into the lid of the wool. This will reduce the strain on the wool when opening and closing the lid.
Overall I am really happy with the purse that I made and I can not wait to give it to my friend.
Thankyou for reading ❤
Keep Smiling 🙂
