Camille's purse




I finally found the brown ribbon to put on this purse for my friend Camille. It's similar to the smaller one I made earlier, but I used a cable-like stitch and love the way it turned out. I also like it with the flower pin.

  8. I used size H/8 hook and worsted medium 4 yarn. Makes a nice size purse. I'm crocheting one side, then the other and stitching them together. This is how I attach the handle(ring). With right side facing me, pull the hook and yarn from behind thru the inside of the ring. Put your hook in the first sc, pull up a loop into the ring and yo from behind and pull thru to make a sc. The single stitch should be laying on the edge inside the ring. I'm also adding a liner so small items don't fall thru the purse.

  10. Can anyone give a better pattern discription for me? More detailed would be awesome, since I'm using Easy Patterns. Like Row 2-12, hdc in each st....etc. If you think this is too advanced of a pattern, please let me know that also. Thanks.

  14. I'm working on this purse right now. I find that if you start with a hdc foundation row with 46 stitches, it makes for an easier time when adding a handle. Instead of using a round handle and sewing it on, I'm going to use a U-shaped handle and ad a row or two of decreases on the top to give it a rounder look at the top. I love this pattern!

    1. "Right side" means the outside of the purse, the side you will see. "Wrong side" refers to the inside of the purse, the part you don't see. In this pattern, it is the even numbered rows. Hope this helps
