Birthday Contributor Post - The Tyger Lily

When I saw this knit purse designed and handcrafted by Karen of The Tyger Lily I knew it would be mine. I bought it for myself as a birthday gift to me. :) The second it came in the mail I jumped up and down and made hubby take a photo of me with it. It just rocks!


This isn't your granny's knit purse. And I can't even count the number of compliments and oohs and aaahs that I've received from people all over the place - the grocery store, teriyaki restaurant, work, everywhere. People can just see the quality and then when I open it with a little snap they are even more impressed. It's hard to believe that it's handmade!

It holds quite a bit but when I first got it I was using a D&B leather wallet that was just way too big so I just "had" to order a smaller wallet and now everything fits like a glove.

Karen sent along a special little extra with my birthday gift - a fabulous knit covered journal for the Grand Prize Birthday Giveaway! It is SO cute!!!

Perfect to carry in your bag or keep by the phone for a stylish notepad helper. It matches my purse! But I'm not keeping it. :) Ha!

I highly recommend The Tyger Lily's products and service. She is excellent!

Thank you Karen for participating in my fun Birthday celebration!!!

Is that the $5.95 one on her site!? If it is, I am so getting that! That is adorable! I need a new purse for spring anyway! :D :D

The one for $5.95 is just for the PATTERN. Not the purse. :) The purse was $75 and I didn't see a new one up on her site but she does have other designs.

If you can knit get the pattern. I can't knit to save my life. lol

Oh I just hearted her shop. I like the handles on your purse more than the one she currently has up. I love that color!
