I have recently started to wear glasses . . . I can't read much of anything without them. This is a problem when I go out to dinner and want to carry a small bag rather than a large one. There is just no space for my glasses . . . so I designed this little felted handbag that converts to a clutch of shoulder bag. It's a quick knit, adorable, perfect to make as a gift or for yourself, and economical: it is the perfect marriage of aesthetics and practicality.
Best of all: now I don't have to beg other people to read me the menu when we go out to dinner. This little purse is the perfect dinner companion.
