After I made my first crochet purse, http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=315171.0 a friend asked me to make her one.  But when we chose the material, she couldn't decide which yarn color to go with so she asked for two purses! 

The purple one is a little bigger, and has slightly larger inside pockets.  It also has a snap closure.  The blue one has a button closure. 

Group shot:


Blue (or turquoise or whatever)


Purple:

Odd angle but it gets the button closure and the lining:


Inside pockets:


And both have my nifty handmade labels!



Love to hear what you guys think over here on the purses board, the last one was posted on the crochet board.

I love the fabric in the handles, that's clever!

those are really pretty; the colours are nice and they don't look all "flabby" and loose and mushy the way that most knitted ones look (like after two uses they'd start slouching, fraying, coming apart - no offense to knitted bags or anything)  great job

Holy wow those are cute. I wish I could crochet. Those are really beautiful. I love the little bits used to finish them off.

So cute! What stitch did you use, it's really nice looking. I especially like how it gives the purses defined diagonal stripes.

I based the stitch on one in my stitch dictionary called a wattle stitch, but it had directions for going back and forth and I went in a spiral.  Basically it's a [sc, ch1, dc] in the ch1 space from the round before.  For the beginning row you do [sc, ch1, dc, skip 2 ch] But the crazy part is, I turned both these inside out after I made them.  The other side the diagonal stripes are more pronounced.  You can kinda see it in my previous post I linked, but the pic isn't that good.
