Thanks! Cheesy It was really fun - took a good part of a Saturday, but it's pretty easy once you get the hang of the pattern. Good luck! Let me see pics when you're done.
22  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My new BIG purse! on: June 08, 2010 10:42:22 AM
I'm so proud of myself - this is one of the biggest crochet projects I've done, and it turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself. I'm a little nit picky, and still a little unsure about the straps, but all in all it's good. It'll grow on me.

This is the pattern I followed: (I used two strands of yarn with a bigger hook like she suggested, and it worked well!)

I used six rows for the band, and four rows for the strap. She said I should work 45 stitches across in the body, but I only worked in 43, not sure where I went wrong, but it worked! Who knows...

All the photos show the purse with a flower, but I couldn't figure out a flower I liked, so I strung a ribbon through the scrunchy part instead. This was actually the sash/tie/belt thingy to the cocktail dress that I wore at my wedding!

Here it is:


No in progress shots, but here's what happened the night I ran out of yarn and showed the work in progress to my hubby:


I like it, it's big enough for all my crap AND a book! hehe Grin

So, do you think the straps are too skinny in contrast to the band, since I did the straps in 4 rows and the band in 6? It's buggin' me...

That is awesome fabric! If you could find that turquoise blue on a pair of heels, that would be really cool! Cheesy

Hmm...I wonder...could you use a pin to attach the flower to the hat, or would it be too floppy? If you could pin it, that would make it more versatile, because you could mix and match hats and flowers! Once I get these current projects done, this is gonna be my next project! Cheesy

I love this! I'm gonna try to make one for myself. I love purple...I might make a grey one with a purple flower. Thanks for sharing!
