Workshops & Temptation

Today I spent the day here teaching how to make this crocheted clasped purse.

The purse body itself is crocheted in Rowan Cocoon, a merino and kid mohair mixed yarn, and then machine felted.
The Clasp is hand sewn in and the purse is finished with a crochet ruffle edge and freeform embellishment.
The day went very fast, and it was also incredibly hard not to get side-tracked by all the lovely other Rowan Yarns and Amy Butler Fabrics on display...I was however very controlled with my purchases despite all the surrounding temptation and came away with another purse clasp and ball of Rowan Cocoon to try another of my purse designs.
