I wanted to take a picture of these before I wrapped them up and never saw them again! Here are the purses I knit for the women in my family. I hope they like them!
These are all based on the Buttonhole bag from Mason Dixon. I changed the pattern up a little for each one. I love how you can make the bag big or small - wide or thin. It's such a versitle pattern.
I used a combination of Cascade 220, Lopi, Noro, and some random wool I lost the band for from my stash :)
I added a brooch to each bag that suited the colors I used...
Oh and at my house - this is what happens when I decide to take pictures on the floor. I get a lap full of toys.... Hurley has decided that if at first you don't succeed - try try again. He will bring me one toy after another until I decide I play with one. I'm serious! This dog is nuts. I can't tell you how many toys end up piled up at my feet while I'm knitting. Sitting on the floor - may not have been the best idea!! hehehehe
In addition to the toys - I got some strange looks...
"Mama - what are you doing on the floor?"
"While you're down there - could you throw me a toy!
