Penny Purse

This sweet little pocket purse has a multitude of possible uses! 


PENNY PURSE



Pop a few sweets inside - maybe chocolate coins - or a few After Eights - 
and gift it to someone this festive season. 

Or if sweets are not to your taste - you could add a little gift - earphones, soap, a little candle, earrings, flavoured teabags or a giftcard ......... 

This pattern was a recent Friday Night Mystery Knit - and has been very popular!    In case you missed the pattern - here it is again.
