Made this for Anne in the BumblesandFriends 12″ square exchange. I think the rose turned out lovely! The pattern is from 200 Crochet Blocks.
I made this for Tina for Crochet List’s handbag exchange. I copied the pattern of a purse that Robynn send me from the same exchange, because I really liked the ribbing. Essentially, I made a long rectangle of DC stitches and folded it to make the purse body. I did rounds of SC stitches around the top, chaining loops to make the handles, and doing more SC until I felt the handles were sturdy enough. I love how it turned out!
