Party Purses (AC-44)
Fast and easy to knit, these small felt purses will add pizzazz to any outfit. Novelty yarn (single or double strand) is knit and felted along with the wool to create a colorful textured fabric. The strap is a simple I-cord made to any length desired and is pulled through a small loop on the opposite side of the purse to create an interesting but easy closure.
