So after eye-balling a certain style of purse for years, I got the guts up to watch a tutorial on YouTube this morning just to see if it's something possible for the old dog to learn.   Yeah, I'm that dog.  tee hee  This was exactly what I'd been looking for.  So pumped to give this a shot - now keep a watch out for some fun cable knit purses with clutch closures.  PERFECT!  You give it a try, too!
Oriental silks and embroidered fabrics are screaming at me for linings.........  Think I suffer from texture-itis.  Ha!
