Thanks for all the kind words. Y'all are making me grin quite a bit.
xxPunkxxWorksxx, you totally should try. *grins* Definitely easier than 'normal' crochet, imho.
abbynormal, I pretty much made it up as I went along, yeah. Usually do. I'm one of these people who have no idea what they're making until they're finished with it. *grins*
I basically just made one huge gray rectangle (36 st wide, with a 3.5 mm hook, if you must now). Then I crocheted the handle, which was looking like one extremely skinny scarf, sewed the outsides together (if that makes sense) and sewed it on my rectangle.
Then I made the flower, and the skull thing, sewed them onto pins, and...
... voila, purse. Hope that was informative, and such.
