Japanese fabric Purse


Japanese fabric Purse, originally uploaded by soja.

Another thing on the list! I was a bit worried that the clasp would be very tricksy, so I thought buying a kit would make it simpler - and I have been an admirer of Cotton and Cloud's blog for a while. She makes a lot of lovely knitted things, including a knitted purse like this and writes about her furry friends.

I bought this kit, with this beautiful Japanese fabric from her Etsy shop, and I love it! Getting the cording into the clasp was a little tricky on the second half, I think because getting in the material had been a bit too easy so there was too much material in there... but overall it was quick and simple - thanks to having everything spelt out very clearly in Cotton and Cloud's directions.
