This was a joint effort.
I loved this purse pattern
but didn't realize to finish it I would need to know how to crochet.
Fran SAVED the DAY!
I only put fringe on the front and it looks cuter than the photo shows. The handles had some sort of twisted crochet thing-y going on and that's where Fran came in. I planned on giving it to Tim's cousin last year but didn't get it finished in time so maybe I'll give it to her when we see her at Thanksgiving.
Update: Susan LOVED the purse I gave her at Thanksgiving. She lives in the Palo Alto area of CA and she said it's very trendy!
