Group Description

Purse, clutch, grip, pocketbook, reticule, satchel, poke, holdall, pouch, wallet, tote - a handbag by any name makes a great fashion accessory. If you make, buy, collect or just plain love handbags, join us here for discussion on all things 'baggy'.

Whether you knit, crochet, quilt, stitch, weave, sew, felt, carve or in any other way create purses, you can ask questions, discuss techniques, and share photos of any handbags you have made. Although a lot of us create our bags with knitting or crocheting, often using our stitches in a freeform way, we welcome anyone who is interested in making purses, whatever the medium. We can all point others in the direction of interesting websites with great bag photos or free patterns; you can tell us about your latest trendy handbag find,or let us into your closet to see what you have in your bag collection!

See examples of many wonderful bags created by some of the members of this group on our exhibition site: http://handbags.knotjustknitting.com
Whatever your favourite craft, we'd love to have you join us. Styles so far have included patchwork, hand and machine embroidery, felt, woven, knitted and crocheted.

And if you happen to also be into creating interesting and unusual hats, why not also join our sister group http://groups.yahoo.com/group/If_the_hat_fits

Or if handmade scarves are more your thing, you might also like to check out http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ScarfCrazy
