Beaded Purse

The class sample is done and in the shop. I designed this one from scratch - couldn't find a pattern anywhere that I liked or that taught the techniques I was looking for. I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out. These are cr*ppy photos; I'll try to get a better one tomorrow during spin night.
And because I'm compulsive, I made a second sample with sparkly beads. I love this one.
It's hard to see in this photo, but the white yarn has round white beads and the red yarn has really pretty red beads. This would make a great around-the-neck passport carrier or purse for essentials at Fourth of July events.

Tech specs: Sample 1 uses 1 hank sportweight Euroflax Linen in 'Sage', Size 6 beads, and an "E" hook. Sample 2 was made with 3 colors of Tahki-Stacy Charles 'Cotton Classic' 100% mercerized cotto
in ‘3003’, ‘3488’ and ‘3870’, Size 6 beads, and an "E" hook.

Cute crocheted purses! I like seeing beadwork mixed with knits and crochet
