Bored with standard socks? Looking for a little adventure with an ethnic flair, but not on tiny needles? Try a purse with the structure of a Turkish Toe in bulky yarn!

I love the exuberant color of Turkish socks. However, sometimes the tiny yarn used for most socks gets in the way of learning. Imagine learning without making a whole sock. Try this fun sock-toe-turned-bag. Even the button flap is based on a Turkish Heel type! You need never make a second sock, either!

Not felted. Bulky yarn, two yarns per round, means dense fabric with no need to shrink.
