Pyramid Purse Complete

I can’t believe I’m finally done, and none too soon. The deadline for the purse competition is the 31st, but the store isn’t open then so it’s really today.

It feels like it’s been forever since I completed something. I even managed to line the purse with fabric covered cardboard. It really was necessary so the purse could stand up and have a definite shape.

I went a little simpler on the closure than I was originally planning because of time constraints. I made bobbles with buttonholes – nothing fancy. No time to make a purse strap either; oh well, I guess it will have to be a clutch. Overall, I’m pleased with the results.

That's a really beautiful clutch! I love the fading of colors; the dark blue into the medium blue, into the lighter blue, into the sandy color. I think it looks rather beach sort of. I like how the sandy color looks heathered too, or maybe that's the camera doing things. Either way, it's really loverly.

Thank you, both! The yarn does have a heathered colour look to it. It is a suede-type yarn. My intention was to make it look like the pyramid had a reflection in the water.
