Crochet Purse & Pattern
I used a 5.0 mm hook and some cotton yarn. It might be Bernat Handicrafter Cotton, but I am not completely sure as I bought it as a mill end several years ago at a sale.
Here's what I did:
Bag Sides (make 2):
sc in second ch from hook and then in each chain across (34 sc), turn
*ch 1, sc in each stitch across* repeat until piece measures 6 1/2 inches
To join sides of bag, put wrong sides together and whip stitch the side and bottom seams together.
Handles (make 2):
sc in second ch from hook and then in each chain across (69 sc), turn
*ch 1, sc in each stitch across* repeat until handle is 1 inch wide
Attach handles to each side of bag directly beside the side seams.
This pattern is for a fairly small bag, perfectly suited for a little girl.
And while I added a flower and leaves (click here for the pattern) to my bag you could embellish your bag with stars, pom-poms, or whatever else you can think of.
Happy crocheting, and if you have any questions please ask.
