"TWIRL" Knitted and Crocheted Handbag
Clockwise from top left: 1. tissue props the bag open, 2. side view
3. detail showing yarn with locks, 4. purse opening with my hand for scale

This unruly, one of a kind bag is is made from my own handspun artyarn called "Happy Easter Accident". It will make a great evening bag or a spring accessory! I knitted the body of the purse, then used another of my handspun yarns--a simple purple with heathered silk noil--to crochet the edges, add the handles and finish the top. The handles are black plastic commercial rings. I used a coral colored cotton quilting fabric to line the purse. It's neatly hand stitched in place.

This handbag measures about 11" across, 7" tall (10-1/2 including the handles), and about 2" deep. It should hold a wallet, check book, phone, and a few odds and ends. Yarn is made from wool, alpaca, sparkle Cotswold wool locks, mohair, silk noil. Hand wash, stuff with plastic bags to reshape, hang or dry flat.
