What a great bag! I recently purchased the book and am looking forward to making a purse from it very soon! A local yarn shop in Atascadero, California (The Scarlet Skein) is teaching a class on how to make one of the purses from the first Pursenality book. I am hoping to take it! By the way, if you are ever in the Atascadero area (Central Coast - San Luis Obispo area), stop by the Scarlet Skein. It's a wonderful store! I've posted specific information on the United States Yarn Stores Map thread.
