This a simple to knit little purse, a project for beginner knitters. I have knitted my purse in stripes, but you could just knit in one colour to make it easier. The purse is closed with a zipper, which is sewn in by hand.

TECHNIQUES: The purse is knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, knit stripes and sew seams.

FINISHED SIZE: The purse is approximately 9.5cm tall and 11cm wide.
