LaBeana Bags Purseware This purse is the first product of my collaboration with Lauren Abrams of LaBeana Bags.

Lauren’s resin purse handles are a joy to work with—beautifully crafted and very sturdy. The pattern for the purse is a free download available below; purchase Lauren’s handles from the LaBeana Bags Etsy shop.

Skill Level: Intermediate

Size: 8"/20 cm tall x 10"/25 cm wide at the widest point

Yarn: Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece (80% cotton/20% merino, 215 yds/197 m per 3.5 oz/100 g), shown in Cavern; 2 skeins

Take the time to check gauge before beginning to make sure the finished purse will fit the handles.

The purse itself can be knit by a beginner, but the blocking and seaming may require more advanced skills; you will be using mattress stitch to graft a curved bind-off edge to another curved bind-off edge and both pieces are patterned.

This pattern includes:

  • Stockinette stitch
  • Increasing and decreasing
  • Picking up stitches
  • 3-needle bind-off
  • Blocking
  • Mattress stitch

    Where do you get the leaves to add to the bag? Or do you have a pattern for them also?
