Knitting with Beads 90/365

In a valiant effort to combine the using up of knitting materials and beads I am having a go at knitting a Civil War Era type purse. if it doesn't drive me insane it should come out quite fetching.


It's not as hard as it first appeared to be, just tedious. I am using size 1 needles because I didn't have 000s and cotton crochet thread because I don't have silk and five colors of beads because I don't have enough of any one color. Other than that...LOL!

Your modifications to the materials and tools are ways of making your purse uniquely your own! The photo on the right makes it look like a purse that will give you many years of good service.
