      I found the cutest and easiest crochet purse pattern online! It’s a special occasion purse using single crochet stitches.  With its flap and long strap, it is a no-fuss purse. The decorative accents add to its beauty.

       One purse can be made in an evening! It also will hold the necessary items needed for a night on the town!

       This purse will be perfect as a pre-Christmas gift.  My family and friends will love them.

        • Mzd3,

           I learned(still learning) to crochet by watching  online tutorial videos. Amazing what you can learn! Also I went to Michaels and bought the kit“My Crochet Teacher” by Susan Bates. The kit has an instruction book, crochet hooks and a few other helpful items.

          Crocheting is so relaxing and fulfilling. The people I’ve gifted really appreciate receiving a handmade gift. Creating with my own hands is one of my passions!

          Neicy, I’m being strongly pushed to learn how to upload photos! As I already know, learning never stops! Thanx for the” push” and you too Tuliplady.

        • MzD, it’s pretty easy to learn.  I taught both my daughters when they were 5.  Just like anything else it takes a little patience and practice. There are so many great illustrated “learn how” books out there nowadays that make it really simple.  Plus you have friends here who can talk you out of a jam.
