Knit up this retro camera purse for Instagram fans or photographers.

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, and work a k2tog decrease. The purse is finished with a zipper closure, so you will need to know how to sew in a zip (this is done by hand sewing, not on a sewing machine). The stripe decoration is added using Swiss darning (or duplicate stitch) embroidery.

FINISHED SIZE: The purse is approximately 14cm wide and 12cm tall.
