    Now you will know that I've lost what little mind I originally had. I've been saving our juice pouches and have made dd and myself each a purse with them. It was harder to do than I thought. It sewed together okay, but putting the bottom on was a pain and I did make the first set of handles...

    Has anyone tried knitting purses from fabric? I saw this on Carol Duvall's show and am looking for some fabric I like to try it. I also saw kits for these at Hobby Lobby. If anyone has tried it I would like to know how they turned out.

    Do you carry an expensive purse that you keep forever, or a cheapie one that you replace whenever you get bored? I carry a Dooney and Burke. It is my fourth one. Each has lasted me about 3 years. The old ones are still in good shape, I was just ready for a change. The best thing about Dooneys...
