Mary brought this unusual project to the last meeting and let us know a little bit about it.
Mary was a little concerned about the asymmetrical top closure but several of us who saw the UFO in person thought it was a nice touch and would make the finished purse more interesting.
Mary has identified a free pattern on Ravelry (Crocheted Lace Clutch by Haley Pierson-Cox) that has a very similar stitch pattern to the completed part of the purse. She'll use that pattern to help complete this project.
Mary, we can't wait to see this when it's finished - it will be a lovely dressy bag!
