Pineapple Purse and a Cowl

So, I found a new love this weekend.  I had purchase several purse handles at the fabric store at a huge discount.  (lets say several months ago)  I kept meaning to make a couple purses, but lacked the vision.   Then, it hit me.  To combine two of my favorite things together.  Yarn and sewing made what I think a quite nice combination.

And of course when I love something, I have to take a lot of pictures.......

A fun hot pink pineapple design with a black fabric background makes for a one of a kind purse.

I added two zippers, one to close the bag and the other as a interior zipper.  The inside is a super fun lime and turquoise peace batik.  Pretty groovy! (A little too cool for me)

I love this, but I had to give it away.  But it was okay because I will show you later what I made myself.  Well, that isn't all that I finished this weekend.  I decided to join a CAL with Crochet Happy, slightly late, but it is better late than never.

I used Red Heart Soft yarn.  It is such a rich brown and turquoise color.  It is so snugly and soft and just in time because we are expecting a little snow.

Not only did I finish two projects, but I Stash-busted three whole skeins of yarn.  Yipee!!!
