Ooooh, that is so adorable. I'm making one! I have a single bamboo purse handle that I couldn't find a pattern it would work for. It looks like I could use it for this if it's wide enough. Did you use a single strand or double strand of yarn?

Battlemaiden....I used one strand for the purse. You can use two strands, but if you do you may have to do modifications to the flower since this will make the overall size of the purse bigger.
