I spent 60 hours making a (cough) lute-shaped purse as a Christmas present for Lady Amelot de Akeney.
It’s based on English/Italian/German/Netherlandish examples from the 16th century.
My documentation, inspirations and references can be downloaded as a pdf file:

In March-April 2015, I made another version of a lute-shaped purse for Lindoret – see my blog post on it for more information.
