This little gem is darling to look at yet easy enough for a beginning crocheter to make. The mini shell stitch is fun and feminine, giving the piece great texture and style.
This size purse is great for keeping your coins in, or stow away those small items that float around your purse, like chapstick, gum, and eye drops.
Each skein of this yarn will yield three of these purses, so make one for you and give away the others! They make great gifts for the gal who has everything, and they have sold 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.
