Alvie is the first in my new line of bags and purses - YAY!

Alvie was hand knitted in a diamond brocade stitch, out of an earthy, rugged raw silk yarn that was hand-dyed and -spun in Nepal. It is a very natural and little-processed yarn with a very organic and soft feel. You may even spy a few tiny specks of straw, which I noticed as I was knitting.

I trimmed the edge of the purse flap in a bit of handspun I had left over from one of my favorite Yarnistas, LushMommy.etsy.com . A complimentary green with bits of brown and sparkle.

A large metal snap closes the purse, and a sturdy cord, braided and crocheted out of cream lace and various earth-toned yarns, serves as the purse-strap. The strap is fastened to the purse with two metal O rings and embellished with a bit of chocolate velvet and more lace.

Alvie is lined with a leaf-green cotton/linen fabric, which I found here on Etsy from MizzFabric.etsy.com . A little lace pocket is big enough to fit your cell phone or some loose change.

Measures10 1/2" (26.5cm) wide by 6" (15cm) tall. Strap measures 19 1/2" (49.5cm) .
