I am the type of person who uses one purse. I like to keep it organized and just so, and that is the purse I take everywhere with me. My problem is I can't find the exact purse to suit me, so I decided to try my hand at crocheting a purse. Does anyone have any suggestions about what type of yarn (thread, whatever) I should use that will last a long time with lots of use? I want to find just the right thing and not break the bank either.
If you do full a purse, you'll want to use a good 100 percent wool that is capable of fulling. Cascade 220 (not "superwash") is a good choice and reasonably affordable for wool that can be fulled. Lots of nice colors too.

Thanks for all the suggestions. Has anyone used nylon yarn? Does it hold up well?
I've used nylon. It holds up really well. I didn't find it rough on my hands. I did find it very slippery and tempermental when it came to tension. It kept wanting to get tight, no matter what hook size I was using.
I didn't line my bag. The stitches were so tight using sc that nothing will poke out of that bag.
