Update: FO Gift for OS secret pal

All set and ready to mail!

I carried it with me to the local Joann's to find a button and it looks so cute! (cuter than the picture) A little nubby with a nice soft halo from the mohair.

You can also slide your forearm through the handles and wear it, if you want (it was easier for me to do that for a bit while my hands were full). It looks great next to jeans, with the soft colors.

Pattern: Teeny Tiny Tote (fits a tiny wallet, cellphone and lipstick) I added straps instead of using cord handles and a buttonhole.

Yarn: Fiesta Yarns' Watermark (I love this yarn and will use again! as often as I can afford)

Timeframe: did not take long at all, just a few night's knitting. Mostly it was delayed due to me forgetting to take the final picture.

I hope she likes it- she's got an elementary aged daughter who might like the purse if it is too small for an adult size.
