This little purse is a cut-down version of a bigger bag (yet to be photographed). The original pattern was from Patons Modern Crochet Book 1316.
It was originally going to be a small clutch bag to take to a wedding in November, but it turned out too small. So now I have a small purse, a big bag, and I’m about to start on the in-between-for-wedding-bag. 😀
This is made using two strands of yarn together. I’ve used Rowan Cotton Glace, but you could use something cheaper ~ I just had some Rowan in my stash. And since husband has been threatening a Yarn-Intervention, I thought I best try to cut down by one or two balls. Nothing serious, mind you!
The flower pattern is one I occasionally play around with. As much as I love the look of multiple-tier flowers, I don’t enjoy making them. This one is a compromise. Still a pretty look, but very easy to make.
The zip and lining are hand stitched in place. Have I mentioned how much I hate sewing zips? The thinking-about-it was worse than the “doing it” though, I must say.
