This purse was inspired by the awesome JUL strap I was asked to review. I had some Berroco Indigo yarn left over from another project and they just seemed to fit together so well. I’d been thinking of making a granny square style purse for a while now, and everything finally came together to make that happen. I was so inspired by the results that I took the time to line it, which is an easy final touch that you can choose to do as well.
