I crocheted this purse from the first part of the instructions of “Topaz Purse” by Sylvia Landman. I left off the last few rounds and the ruffle section. I then sewed the lining out of a shiny interior decorating fabric in beige. I used some reclaimed wooden (maybe bamboo?) handles and irridescent ribbon I got in a grab bag (I took out the wire first). I had to hand-sew the lining/outer/ribbon because it wasn’t going to fit on the machine. Tedious, but I loved the final results!
