Yipee! Crochet is Popular Again!
I've been collecting free crochet patterns for quite awhile now, and ever so often I glance through them to see if something catches my eye.
A few weeks ago as I was finishing a rose and leaves, I ran across a free pattern for this adorable purse. This purse pattern is so quick and easy and I didn't even have to make any adjustments at all. For those who crochet or knit, you know how rare it is that a pattern doesn't need some "fixing".
I did use one 2.5oz. ball of 4-ply 100% cotton yarn instead of what's listed in the "materials" section.
I then used just a safety pin to make a brooch and attach the rose and leaves to the purse. I'm pleased with the results and I hope you will be also.
I'm only showing a link to the purse pattern because free patterns for the roses are abundant on the internet.
Have fun and I'd love to see your finished purses!!
