Easter Purse

I looked high & low for an Easter Pocketbook, and at the last minute decided to make my own out of some leftover yarn. I was pleased with the look, and filled with a bag of cheerio's this little angel loved it! I used red heart lustersheen and an E hook. I sc 4 rows for the base, then alternated sc & front post dc around. This created a nice thick pocket book that is soft, yet won't let little treasures fall through. I usually make these in all cotton yarn, but the acrylic lustersheen did not stretch as much, so the "pocket", as she calls it, kept it's shape.
