Have I mentioned how much I love to crochet lately? Well a couple of weeks ago, I got a book from the library - Stitch 'N Bitch Crochet. There is a pattern in there for a little purse. So, I grabbed some yarn that I had purchased on sale at JoAnn and started in on it. I wasn't 100% sure that it would turn out ok, but I was determined to master rectangular/square crochet shapes (circles are more my style). I LOVED how it turned out soo much that I wanted to use it every day without risk of losing all my things (darn crochet is so HOLEY). So, I found a tutorial online to line the purse. (I got to use my sewing machine! Yay!) I happened to have some fabric with the same shade of red in it. I whipped up a little matching flower (my fave thing to crochet) and VOILA! and PRESTO! A purse I adore! Of course, it is too small really. Sooo, I need to find a pattern I love for a BIGGER crocheted purse!!!
