I’m making a purse for my little sister, it’s supposed to look sort of like this (excuse my photoshop skills ):
I was thinking of using some kind of fun novelty yarn for the chunk marked “?”. I was thinking maybe ‘fun fur’ but I have little knowledge of yarns and this is also the first time I attempt to mix two kinds. I was wondering, would the gauge be very different and make it look odd? What might be a better yarn to use? Do you have any tips you could share with a beginner?
