I saw Hollylynne's http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=160274.0
I saw Datura547's http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=169414.0


And decided that I must make one also: Here it is: Closed Notice the little "Be Happy" button.

Open to see the lining:

aHhh! Duckies!!!

Detail of the lining:

And Bumblebees, OH no!!

This is super easy to crochet. I hdc all the rows: 30 stitches across.

You did great matching the yarn color, lining and button.  They all look perfect together!

I'm never too sure about how to line a crocheted purse.  Yours looks so neat.  Did you hand stitch it in with thread?

I did hand stitch it in. I think that is probably the easiest way to ensure that the fabric is even and straight because I hand sew so slowly. Another nice thing is that the thread is so well hidden that you can't even see it on the outside of the purse.
