I finished it!!

I am so excited to announce that I have completed my first crocheting project. I finished the body of it at our meeting on Tuesday night. Last night I hunted around for some purse handles. I first went to AC Moore thinking they would have more stuff, but they didn't have anything I could use at all. The lady there suggested I go to Michael's. So over there I went.

They thankfully had some round plastic handles that were the perfect size.

Initially I was going to dye the purse a different color since it was sooo white. But being impatient and wanting to be finished with it, I decided to keep it white. It was such an easy project that I could make another one and dye it if I really want to.

I bought a pair of black handles and some black and white ribbon. I really wanted some ribbon that was black with pink accents, but Michael's had nothing of the kind. So, I went with white.

I think it turned out pretty okay for my first project. Since it it just cotton, it cannot really support anything with any kind of weight, so I am going to add a suspended liner to the inside so I can put my keys and wallet in it without it losing its shape.

Take a look:

That's gosh darn adorable, Dana. I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical about the white (my brain can't process things not in their original color), but with the black it looks really cute. Bravo!

I LOVE that! Congratulations, by the way! That is so cool! I think that it looks best in just plain black and white! That is awesome!
