Rebel Scum: a variation on the fast and easy purse

I made this as a gift last summer. It's the same idea as in my fast and easy purse pattern, but finished a little differently.

Pattern modification:

Once you have knit the main rectangle body, sew up the side seams, but pinch in the corners and sew them as shown in my lovely, oh-so-professional diagram.

Then cast on 10 stitches and work in st stitch until you have a strip that's the length of the handle you want. Repeat.

Line the purse with felt, and finish the top edge with a felt strip or bias tape.

Firmly attach the handles.

Embellish as you see fit.
