Envelope Purse

Recently I taught an easy crochet class at Six Loose Ladies, our local fiber shop. The project was a cute little envelope purse made from one skein of yarn. While students were busy making the body of the bag, I started another one from some beautiful recycled silk we had in the shop. Working with this was interesting since it is very uneven in thickness and has some very large slubs. Also, it isn’t plied so it kept kinking up. But the purse came out very nicely, especially after I used a contrasting rayon chenille for the edge of the flap and added a large gold button.
