When I was little, my grandma taught me to crochet a chain, and until recently that's about all I could do.  A lady at work's mother crochets, and she got me started on "real" crocheting, and I've been having a ball ever since.  Well they are moving, and instead of packing up her stash of half-used balls of yarn, she gave it to me! Score!

Included in the stash was an unfinished purse made of ribbon.  I forgot to take a before pic, but she had just made the outside of the purse and it was still laying flat.  I added a button, button loop, handle and lining.  I made the strap really long so I could be worn across the body, or tied in a knot and carried by hand or shoulder.





And just for fun, here's a cell phone pic of all the yarn she gave me!

That's a really pretty bag- I love the long handle- sooo useful!
Also, you lucky dog- that's a lot of yarn.  Shocked
