I made this funky little purse for my friend Siobhan who likes things that are purple and sparkly and happened to have a birthday last weekend. She absolutely loved it.



I lined the inside with some lightweight sparkly denim and gave it a zipper. You can't see it too well in the picture but here you go anyway Tongue


It's about 8 inches long. I used 2 strands of Bernat's Cool Crochet (remember that stuff? came and went pretty fast!) that I'd bought for something else I will probably never make. I probably used 200+ paillettes.

Thanks for looking! C+C welcome.

That is beautiful!  Did you crochet the paillettes on as you went, or sew them afterwards?

I am trying to turn all of my non crafty friends and relatives into crafters. It's like a cult. I want everyone to become addicted to my obsessions!

Love, love, love it! Was it ridiculously hard to get those little circles on the yarn? I can only imagine.

Thank you for all your nice comments Smiley

I worked it from the bottom up, stitching the paillettes right in as I went. It wasn't hard and only took a few days.
