I finished the knitting part of this last week but didn’t get it lined until Saturday. I had some fabric in my stash that was going to be used for a circle skirt that I used to line it. I also made pockets on the lining to make it easy to stash my phone and ipod and other little things.
I originally knitted an icord handle but didn’t like how stretchy it was so I bought a handle at JoAnns. I had no idea at all how to put a handle on a knitted item. So I looked through a couple of books and decided to knit a tab that I could sew down onto the purse. I tried it out when I put my wallet, phone, and other stuff into it and took it to the store to go grocery shopping. It pretty much ripped off of the purse as soon as I reached into my purse. So I searched around the internet for ideas. I found this tutorial and decided to try it. It seems to be working just fine, so I’m happy.
Here is my Ravelry project page if you want the details.
