KNIT: 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea Purse

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea Purse

You know me, I love easy patterns...but you know what I love more? Easy patterns that kick major hiney! That's why I love this purse!

This simple pattern was made when I was experimenting. I was actually sitting by the ocean when I casted on and thought wow... what I'm working on totally looks like seaweed, very colorful seaweed.

The handles are a "Nicole" creation. I made them out of wire. Wire? I like having fun with metal and wire so I whipped these puppies up--and I couldn't find a pair I really liked in any stores so I made my own. If you want a set get in touch with me and I'll make them for $10 a piece.

So, here's what you need:
Size 13 needles
2 skeins of Darn Good Yarn Sari Ribbon Yarn

2 skeins of Darn Good Yarn Blender Live Wire Yarn (100g each)

1 cool button
2 purse handles
needle to finish it up

Here's how you do it:
CO 11 sts, work in moss stitch for all two skeins of the DGY Sari Ribbon Yarn and BO.
Sew up the sides.
I turned it inside out (but that's up to you). I then flipped the first half inch over and stitched it down to create a "lip" around the opening of the purse. I thought this looked nice for the overall shaping.
Next attach the handles.

Now onto some optional embellishments which I think look great. I sewed a big wood button from Darn Good Yarn and braided some left over blender yarn to make a loop/clasp at the opening.

I also made a tassel out of the leftover Blender Yarn.

Dress it up however you'd like.

This project is super easy and the whole thing took me 2 hours to create! So, it's a quick easy gift that will get tons of ohh's and ahhh's!
