Finished the Summer Purse:
I really don't like sewing things together. Attaching the strap was hard, it's a canvas webbing belt, and I doubled it at the ends to keep it from fraying. The button is a wooden octagon I picked up in a fabric store, good and chunky, and I used a single-crochet chain as the button loop. All my stuff has been transferred over, and tomorrow will be its first public outing.
Pattern: my own, making it up as I went along.
Yarn: Lily Sugar n Cream, 2 balls variegated, one ball solid.
