I've been told perfection is boring. Well, I'm certainly not boring (just ask my friends) and I'm definitely not perfect (just ask my kids)! Because of this I have a standing policy of rewarding people who nicely bring an error to my attention with a free single pattern download from my Ravelry pattern store.

This is my new favorite purse. It has absolutely everything I want in a bag:

The bag is constructed by first making the strap/gusset in the large Rime Cable I’ve become so fond of, then grafting the ends to form a loop (my grafting cheat sheet is included). The strap is then trimmed with contrasting applied I-cord. Then the various rectangular components of the bag (sides, dividers, pockets) are worked in place–there is no sewing.

The front of the flap is worked in a smaller version of the Rime Cable and the entire opening of the bag is trimmed with contrasting applied I-cord. When all the components are completed a false bottom is created with extra-firm interfacing slipped into a pocket made of the contrasting yarn allowing the bag to stand up for itself!
