Pretty in Purple

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.

I took it out of the dryer, folded it and stitched it together, and what was once a rectangle started to look like a real purse! I added a strong magnet clasp for easy opening and secre closing.
I love when I see something in my mind, and it comes out my hands just right! I'd love to know what you think about it.
 Happy Friday, everyone! Have a great day today, and don't forget to smile.
