Love Red Heart yarn.

I love making purses, especially felted ones because they are an extra challenge.

I like to use a 100% wool so I can felt it.

I haven't read the directions but it looks simple enough. The combination of seed stitch and cable makes me want to touch it! The color looks more like spring to me.

My favorite yarn for knitting a purse is plarn, preferably in pretty colors.

I like the softness of merino wool and the durability of acrylic. I would use a blend. I like the fresh green color.
