The classic shell pattern has new life and flair when made in fun colors with this different and interesting yarn. And since La Espiga cord comes in 83 colors, you can find a shade to match every outfit.
This size purse is perfect for carrying coins or containing those smaller items that roam around the interior of your purse like keys, chapstick, and gum. I have one in every bag I carry and my friends and family love getting these as gifts. They also sell well at craft shows.
Once crocheting is complete, finishing your purses requires some sewing to add a lining and a zipper closure. You can use a machine or hand sew. If sewing isn’t in your skill set, recruit a friend or family member with seamstress skills to help. It only takes a half hour to create the lining and set the zipper. I have filmed a step-by-step instructional video to walk you through the process.
