100% cotton purse?

If I want to make a purse, would 100% cotton be a good idea? I have cotton yarn and don’t need anymore dishcloths so thought I’d “practice” my first purse with the cotton. I might even like it enough to use it. :teehee:

that sound like a lot of fun and it would be a nice mix up to dish cloths
do u have a pattern? it would be good 2 start small ish or medium!

I don’t have a pattern. I’ll just knit in garter and stockinette stitch and maybe add some beads. I was mostly wanting info on if the cotton would be a good idea since I have to much of it and need something to use it for. I made my little granddaughter a purse using acrylic and it turned out real cute. I added a ruffle that had beads attached. Mine will be just a rectangular purse and I’ll probably add lining inside. If it turns out okay, I’ll post a picture.
