I don't know what it is about making small items that appeals to me?! I found some cotton yarn in my stash and tried to make a bag with it, but it was far too heavy. A coin purse seemed a good compromise.
I have tried making it in two pieces and in the round and prefer the latter. The only issue is the transition of the pattern and making that join (where one pattern ends and another starts) look ... well ... seamless. I still haven't got it looking as I want.
Next job is the lining. I have some stiff poplin to help it keep its shape. Then deciding how to attach the zip to the bag! I also plan a wrist loop and some adornments, although I'm not sure what yet. Watch this space!!
