This purse started life as the head of an amigurumi chihuahua that didn't look much like a chihuahua. You might think that I was using odd colors for a chihuahua, but if you knew my daughter, you'd understand.  Anyway, I was about to rip it out and start over when I noticed that the yarn was coming together in a wonderful spiral and I just couldn't take it apart.  So I kept it going until it was just big enough to hold my driver's license, debit card and chap stick which is often all that I carry.  In the summertime, I often don't have any pockets in my shorts or dresses so I made a nice long strap to put across my shoulders, and now I've got a wonderful little bag to use this summer.

It's made with Peaches and Creme cotton yarn in Fiesta Ombre with a US 0/2.55 mm steel crochet hook.  I nearly dislocated my fingers using such a small hook, but I'm very happy with it now Cheesy





Oh, and I wasn't sure if this should go here or under bags and purses, so I flipped a coin; sorry if it's in the wrong place!
