Lemony Squeezy Home is having their Purse Week Contest Oct 8-12th. This is the first time I've entered.
This is the second time I've made this purse. I sold the first one and wanted one for myself. The pattern is taken from The Perfect Handmade Bag by Clare Youngs. I highly recommend this book. used it several times. The directions are really easy to follow.
The bag is eco friendly wool. It's 11 inches wide with 3 inch gusset, and 11.5 inches long. The strap is 32 inches long. I hand embroidered the birds. Pattern is in the book also. The rings on the handles are key rings.
