This book is filled with fabulous purses for you to knit with one ball of yarn which means we can all get a designer bag for the price of the yarn and our labor. The bags shown in this book are colorful and stunning. Is a handbag your best friend? Is your goal to find or make one as individual as you? The three sisters; authors of “One Ball Knits; Purses” Fatema, Khadija, & Hajera Habibur-Rahman can be very selective when it comes to their handbags, so designing the twenty unique purses, each made with only one ball of yarn, was an inspiring challenge that tested their design and knitting skills. They designed each bag to be up-to-date; yet with classical, stylish and functional appeal. Each bag calls for just one ball, hank, or skein of yarn. Knit it today; step out with your lipstick, cell phone, and mad money in it tonight! A range of styles, shapes, and colors make it hard to pick just one purse, but the simple basics section makes it easy to get started, with guidance on yarn weights and types, tools, and step-by-step directions for essential stitches and techniques. Create a new bag right away with One Ball Knits Purses! Those of you who like to change bags with the season will find a range of designs to suit your needs for spring, summer, fall, and winter. The projects are organized by seasons. Many different techniques are used to create and embellish the purses, including short row knitting, circular knitting, beading, and felting. Some of the handbags have patch or inset pockets; others have hand-stitched leather panels, vibrant embroidery, or sturdy hardware-whatever was needed for the perfect look. FATEMA, KHADIJA, and HAJERA HABIBUR-RAHMAN design patterns for many yarn companies and knitting publications. The sisters live in southwestern Ohio. You can purchase this book and their other “One Ball Knit” books on Amazon.
