This beautiful handbag looks more intimidating than it really is. A unique technique that DOES NOT REQUIRE NUMEROUS COLOR CHANGES!!! Yet, it is still simple enough that an intermediate level artist should be able to complete it with little or no trouble.
There is also a photo tutorial at the bottom of the pattern to show you how to work the transitions.

The flower is optional and can be shaped in 2 ways: with the petals pressed flat or curled around into a circle.
