Cute sheep, but

Or should that say Butt!  In this months issue of Let’s Get Crafting, Knitting and Crochet Magazine (issue 59) I have a cute knitted purse pattern.  The purse is perfect for storing your bits and bobs and plenty big enough for an iPad mini or similar size tablet.

The sheep is worked using the intarsia method and the pretty flowers are crocheted and slipped over the buttons. It is finished with a zip closure, if you are new to putting zips into your knitted projects I can highly recommend this tutorial from  Knitting Daily.  In the video Eunny Jang shows you Techknitter’s technique for making zippers knitable objects so you can knit them into your garments instead of sewing them in by hand.

I thought the rear of the sheep was missing something and mischievous side got the better of me!

This would make a fab Easter present.

As always I would love to see your finished purse on my Facebook page.
