WIP Wednesday: Basketweave Purse
Lately it seems like I've either been making a purse or using the basketweave technique. And in some projects, like this one, I have combined the two. Yes, this is my attempt at the Basketweave Purse pattern. This is a different pattern from the one I previously attempted. I ended up using about 9 oz of Red Heart Super Saver in Dark Orchid.
This purse is not worked in the round like the other pattern instead you work about 19 pattern rows make the gusset/strap and then attach to the purse. Or at least I hope that was what I was supposed to do. Now I need to buy a metal ring and a metal fastener. That should be fun, trying to find that in Germany. I have absolutely no hope that these type of items are sold here on base. Someone posted a photo on Ravelry where a large button was used instead. I think I will keep that option in mind if I strike out on the metal parts.
Have a wonderful day everyone and don't forget to check out the different Link Parties at the bottom of the page!
