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.

I discovered your site while searching for Qualicraft products. I'm enjoying looking around. I make lots of crochet purses too. Adding the flower makes it really nice.ReplyDelete
Welcome Linda. Thank you for visiting and for taking the time to look around. Making crochet purses is so fun!Delete
How did you attach the handles?ReplyDelete
I just sewed them (whip stitch) to the inside of the bag, being careful so that my stitches did not show through to the front of the bag. Hope that helps. Any more questions, please ask. Thanks so much for reading.Delete
