Purse for Denise

IMG_1772

I made this purse for my secret pal from Crochet List. I used a boa yarn I picked up at a dollar store with a strand of worsted weight yarn. I used my standard purse body pattern and just added handles I bought at Joanns. My standard purse patter is:

Ch desired width of purse
hdc along one loop of chain
2 hdc in end loop
hdc along opposite loop of chain
2 hdc in end loop
build up spiral style (do not join, just hdc in previous round) until you’ve reached the desired depth. To finish, decrease with 3-4 sc then slip stitch at a side.

I typically crochet the handles right on in the last round, but you can sew them on, too.

I love the copper color! This purse turned out great!

Purse for my Secret Pal

I made this for my secret pal in the last round of Crochet List’s Secret Pal Exchange. I made a pouch purse by chaining the desired length, and then doing hdc in each loop on one side, with three in each end, and hdc along the opposite side. I then built up spiral style till I had the depth I desired. The star is from a pattern I found online. I also lined the purse with cotton.

Tina’s Purse

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!

Purse for Donnie

I made this purse for Donnie, for the handbag exchange on Crochet List. I am really pleased out it turned out! It is a super easy pattern; just make a large rectangle, fold in half, and crochet the edges together. Crochet around the top attaching the handles as you go, add a fancy button, and you’re set!

Sweet Purse for Lila

Originally made this little thing for the craft fair – I thought it would be a lovely little thing, perfect for holding the necessaries inside a larger bag, and ready for a quick trip to the store or whatever. But… apparently no one else shared my view of it. : ) So, I gave it to my sweet Lila. A sweet purse for a sweet girl. : )

Black Purse

My beloved friends n family n coworkers, mostly, rag on me endlessly about my “Muppet Purses” (which are my assortment of purses made from worsted weight yarn and a strand of complimentary fun fur). This one escaped Muppetdom as I found a neato pin for it, complete with a little clock. Turned out pretty sweet, I think. : )

One of these days I’m going to find big, googly eyes and a fuzzy nose to attach to a particularly brightly colored one…

Purse and Coasters for Mary

I had Mary for the last round of CLDX and CLHBX, so I got to save on shipping. :-p

For Mary’s purse, I used this really neato yarn I got from someone on freecycle. I haven’t a clue what the yarn is, but I did double it with some size 5 cotton thread to give it weight. I also lined it as things would clearly fall through the holes in the stitches.

For her coasters, I used a size 10 cotton thread an a coaster pattern I got from a library book. They were very easy to make. : )
