A dear friend of mine at work has a love of purses that borders on obsession. She asked if I could make her something in her favorite color (purple), and this is what I came up with!
I crocheted it with Stitch Nation "Full o' Sheep" 100% Peruvian wool yarn. The purple color is called "plummy" - how perfect is that? I added the green trim as an accent, and then felted the purse in the washing machine. It's the first time I've used that brand of yarn, and it felted well.
