A purse for Toi.

Ah, yes. I should have thought earlier to put up a blog about the purse I had made for Toi. Lovely little thing. Well, not quite so little, it's actually more of a tote purse. I made it with Bernat Boa yarn in the purple, and doubled it up with Red Heart Super Saver yarn in black, because the boa yarn is just so damn thin, I like to double it up so it knits up quicker. I knitted the shell on a circular needle, and then crocheted the straps. The lining is black fabric-covered plastic canvas. The bottom is the doubled up black fabric, accordion-folded and sewn into the lining. The shell was sewn to the lining using the boa yarn. I was so pleased with how it turned out. And Toi loved it. Hooray.
