I knit this cute little purse after seeing something similar in a LYS in Morgantown, PA. I gave this to my oldest niece for her 11th birthday. I wasn't able to get up to NH until late May, which was fine since I didn't start it until after her April birthday. The I-cord was so simple, the LYSO showed me a quick demo in 1-2 minutes.
I do like the way it turned out. I used regular thread to sew the decorative button on.
