This purse is an old dear friend, but it's like 8 years old and looking a little frayed in spots, so I've started adding chainmail accents to spruce it up.
I've replaced the zipper pull with inverted round, and added chainmail panels to the outside front pockets. It gives a bit of new life. It actually took longer to sew the panels on the pockets than it did to knit the applique pieces. Hey, we can't all be good at everything can we.
I'm thinking about doing something with the strap next...
All rings used are 18 gauge 3/16" anodized aluminum.
