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!!

These are just beautiful!

Something I can't do, crochet. I'm envious of those who can!

OK, I'm impressed. Even I like them and I'm not much of a girly girl.
When are you going to be listing them?

:-)

Hmmm, I am wondering what these would look like if crocheted with wool yarn and then wet felted????

Thanks for the links...this is fun...good job Big Sis!

Thank you everyone for your kind words.

VintageEmbellishment, if you want to make one out of wool yarn, felt it, and then give it to me for Christmas, that would be fine with me. :0)
