This is a first for me.

This is a little purse/tote that I found on the back of the wrapping of a ball of Peaches ‘n’ Cream yarn.  This was very easy to make.  I am very glad that I found it.  I have never made a purse/tote before so this is a first for me.  I had another first with this project.

The other first for me was attaching/inserting eyelets.  I have discovered how great this is.  I had recently purchased an eyelet maker and this was the perfect opportunity to use it since the pattern called for it.  I can’t believe this but I was following instructions.  Success!!

I will use this as a tote because it measures 9X12X3 inches and is entirely too small for a purse for me.  I am going to use this because I made a mistake.  I had planned on putting it in our Etsy shop for sale but then I found the mistake.  Oops.

Please watch for more blog posts in the upcoming days.  I have so much to share with you.
