Sow's Ear Purse

A crocheted purse made with recycled sari silk yarn. I just turned this into the Home & Hobbies division for the San Diego County Fair, along with a necklace and an elaborate bead "tassel".
I didn't use a pattern as such for the purse-- just made it "big enough" to cover a pre-made canvas bag, left holes to use as button holes and then mad a simple flap and strap.
Instructions are currently posted on my Yahoo group. I'll try to "cut and paste" them to this blog....

Still struggling with Front Page 2003... my first experience with web-building software. Not fun, very frustrating. "Help" is rarely helpful, and the books I've got seem to assume I'm an idiot who already knows about how to set up a webpage and/or use Front Page of an earlier incarnation....
