WIP crochet purse

Good Day Neighbor.....
I few posts back, I mementioned that I wanted to crochet a purse.  I did find a pattern that I liked, but for one reason or another, I am unable to get the pattern going. So, always keeping it simple, moving on, and found another pattern for a lovely purse, and I've learned something new to boot.
Have you ever heard of a FSC stitch?  ( Foundation Crochet Stich ) Some of you advanced movers of the hook probably have, I'm pretty vanilla with my stitches, so I had to watch a few tutorials on this one. I believe I have the hang of it.  
The pattern that I found for this purse can be located http://www.futuregirl.com/craft_blog/index.aspx
 Starling Handbag
cute bag no?

It is cute isn't it? I had never heard of this stitch before either. There is a very good tutorial for this item on the blog
highlighted in the post Kathy.

What an adorable purse! I can't wait to see your finish.

Thanks for the link....did you see the hexagon tote? I love hexies! Guess I'll have to add this one to the que!

Wishing you a wonderful day!
