Free Crochet Pattern for a Flower Purse


I love making things that my girls love!  When I started creating animal purses, they seemed to really take to them, as did everyone else.  They are hot sellers at the fairs, and they are fun to make.  I have been creating different ones, each one being more unique and fun.

So far, I've made an Elephant, Owl, Puppy, Mermaid and Basic purse.  Clicking on each name will bring you to their pattern, or, you can purchase one in my Square Market.

I have some more in mind, but my newest one that I've created is a Flower purse!  This one is circular and quick to make up.  Don't let the ease of this pattern fool you though, just look how cute it is!  You can really change it up by using different colors, and even using a variegated color (which I love!)


Wal-Mart.com USA, LLC

Materials
  •  - Yarn - My favorite yarn to use is Red Heart with Love.  Any worsted weight yarn will work though, especially a variegated yarn!
  •  - Hook - Because of the nature of this product, you can really use any hook you like (just remember the bigger you go the bigger the holes will be).  I use a size 5mm or H Hook. 
  •  - Crocheting yarn needle 
  •  - Small amount of thread
  •  - Regular sewing needle.  
Abreviations
  • ch - chain
  • sl st - slip stitch
  • sc - single crochet
  • hdc - half double crochet
  • dc - double crochet

  • *sc in first st, sk 2, 7dc in next, sk 2* repeat around.  (You should have 9 shells now. 
Handle
  • Cut 3 - strands of yarn 80"-100" (whichever color you want on the handle).  Fold them in half and tie them together at the top.  Now that it's folded, you should have 2 strands of each color.  Separate the colors (or if all one color, separate into 3 groups of two), and braid them together.  Tie it off at teh end.  
  • Use some thread and a sewing needle to sew it on the bag.  Sew through the knot a couple of times and then sew up an inch or so on the handle to the inside of the bag on the sides.
