If you are anything like me, you can never get enough purses. I seem to always be in need of a tiny purse that I can just throw my cell and wallet in, and go; especially for going out to dinner or the bar. This pattern came about for that exact need. It is the perfect size for just a few things and uses less then a skein of yarn, so it is quite cheap to make. I hope you enjoy and make yourself up one in every color. You can make it two-tone or plaid like mine. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination.
