This pattern has a beautiful texture and shell stitches are always a feminine favorite! The scalloped edges along the top give it that soft, lace-like finish. You can get two or three of these from one roll of nylon cord, so make one for you and a friend! They are well received as gifts and good sellers at the craft shows I’ve taken them to.
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.
