How to sew sides of projects?

Ok, so I have done the basic knitting for a purse but now I have to simply “sew sides together”. Does that mean using the mattress invisible stitch? (Doesn’t that take forever to do?) I know I don’t want the whipstitch on this. I am not supposed to sew like on a sewing machine, am I? Gee, the finishing is not as straightforward as I thought it would be!! Thanks for answering!!

I usally just use whatever stitch suits me with the yarn that i have been using to create the magic! :wink: you can check out the finishing techniques here (scroll down) and see if one of them suits you. :thumbsup:

The matress stitch will give you an invisible seam!
