After doing 16 inch pillows covered in spirals, working on an 8 inch purse seems almost miniature! In some ways it is more difficult, because there are not as many opportunities to include lots of colors and yarns. I'm having to choose carefully when I make the small spirals so that they don't all look the same. Getting a balance is more of an effort. But the reward is that these things just don't take that long to make.
