purse 23 - orchid

 

 
 

purse_orchid

As fluffy as fluffy can be. You will get many compliments on this purse.
The purse is knit on straight needles using a yarn that felts and a matching fluffy yarn.

When the bag is felted you do not see the felting yarn at all.
The skill level would be beginner except it is a little difficult for a new knitter to see stitches with all the fluff.
