I've been a long-time lurker on the crochet boards but haven't posted due to
being too busy. I've been done with this for awhile but figured it'd make a good first post since it's my first (and thus far, only) original pattern. Technically it's not complete since it needs a lining, zipper, and a handle, but all the crochet part is complete so I figure it counts enough
Here it is, my pop tab purse!Front of purseFront detail
The pop tabs are a bit more visible than the pictures tend to show... I do wish that the pop tabs had ended up showing a bit more but I still have a giant bag full of pop tabs just waiting to be used which means I'll have many more opportunities to mess around and come up with something even better Back of purseBack detail
Like I said, I was totally winging the pattern. There wasn't really any hope of me being able to replicate it for the back so I just decided to do a solid circle with all the colors and hope that it would work out. Magically it did; size, number of stitches, everything!Inside Shot #1Inside Shot #2
Unfortunately I can't sew very well and don't have access to a sewing machine while at school, so I have no idea when it's actually going to be fully finished. I'm very proud of it even though I don't intend on keeping it for myself (I love the colors but it's a bit too small for my liking). Hopefully I'll find someone to give it to/buy it when the that time comes around...
I know I couldn't possibly write up a pattern for it but if someone really wanted, I could try and explain a little bit of what I did. At the least I could give some pointers...
Hopefully everyone likes!
