The purse is finally done, the one I made the card weaving strap for!
This purse was knitted front flap first, in a back and forth rectangle, then a row was purled to make the bottom into a fold. The bottom was done straight stockinette, then another purl row was put on the stockinette side for the fold in the back. The back was then knitted with more designs from a design chart book. The sides were crocheted upwards to attach the back to the front piece and make it a rectangular shaped purse, and yarn was used to attach the ends of the card weaving strap I made in the earlier card weaving post.
A zipper bag was made to go inside it for strength and security, and hand sewn in. Ideally, I had planned to get a zipper the same length as the top opening, but they only had one length of black zipper at the store I went to, so I wound up sewing the sides of the top together to make up for it. C’est la vie. (I did a post on how to make a zipper bag to put inside a purse later, to see that, click here.)
