Not Your Granny's Purse

This is a quick to make purse that would satisfy any girl that loves wearing the latest fashion that you stitched up. It's easy to make, too.

All you do is make two granny squares and join them on three sides with sc. I added beads and used a simple sc bead stitch. I used a solid color yarn and a multi color yarn switching back and forth for variety. I then made an icord using yarn and sewed it on. With a fabric liner hand stitched inside the bag it is ready to go!

It takes one evening in front of the tv set to get this bag all but finished. Sew the liner during commercial break and you can do the hand stitching while you finish watching the show and that is all there is to it.

Does it get any easier or faster than this? I doubt it. Be ready to make lots of these for all the little girls in your neighborhood. Good use for all those partial skeins you got laying around, too. You could even sell these and put the cash away for some romantic candlelit dinner with your husband for being so understanding of your 'needing to watch tv' all those nights.

Have a good one!

Your Sandi
