Anne Purse

Anne Purse is the purse I designed for my friend Anne. She is a mother of three beautiful girls, very girlie and goofy and loves pink. I utilized 2 shaped of pink to create a nice contrast. With Ruffle and rhinestone buckle make this a ultimate girly purse!

Anne Purse shown in the picture was worked using 1 strand of of Cascade 220 and 1 strand of Bollicine Sissi Yarn throughout. You can substitue Cascade 220 with any worsted weight yarn such as Patons Classic Wool or Lamb's pride wool. Bollicine Sissi is a mohair yarn that provides an subtle but interesting texture to the purse. However, adding bollicine Sissi yarn is optional depending on the preference of the user.
