I found a sad little lonely skein of Classic Elite Imagine in the bargain bin for 2 bucks, so I figure, why not?

This yarn works up a dream, but I'm not sure how to finish the bag. Suggestions on closures and the placement of buttons? (they haven't been sewn on yet. )

The colored panel is just a rectangle done in solid shell stitch.

Base chain in multiples of 6, then

Row 1: ch 1( counts as sc), dc in 4th ch from hook, 4 more dc in same space,* skip 2 ch, sc, skip 2 ch, 5 dc in ch,*

Repeat ** till end of row,

Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as dc), 2 dc in base of ch 3, *skip 2 ch, sc in ch, skip 2 ch, 5dc in ch*

Repeat ** till end of row, end row with only 3 dc instead of 5.

Repeat rows 1 and 2 until you have the height of your purse and flap.

For the white I used sc to make rectangular panels for the sides and front, then joined them with sc. Sew the open side to the colored panel with a yarn needle and some dental floss.

I haven't lined the bag yet because I haven't decided if I want to put in a zipper or a frog closure.

cute cute cute! I LOVE little clutch/purses like that! I  made a tiny crocheted purse (basic basic crochet) too....

I didn't put a lining in mine (the stitch was tight enough) but I was able to sew on a little bead and push it thru an opening to button it up....

Dear ecinue88-

I am a crochet FIEND and have been slowly inching towards crocheted bags. My bags are super small so I can actually finish them. Can you tell me how to insert a lining and a zipper or frog closure? (If it's not too much of a pain in the tookus that is) I do so like the bag you made.

kimmie, I think your bag is tops too!

Hm.. I'm not too good at tutorials, but I'll give it a shot.

Lining the bag:

You will need to sew the lining separately. Measure the exact (finished) size of you purse, and use that for your lining measurements. This includes the seam allowance (otherwise the lining will be too big and wrinkle on you. ) Add an inch to the rim side of the lining (the part that will correspond to the opening of the bag.)

For a square bottomed bag, Jordy's tutorial covers how to make a lining that shape (steps 1-5)

For an envelope shaped change purse/ clutch, you need to extend one side of the lining to line the inside edge of the cover. You will also need to add 1/2 inch around the flap lining.

Step two: Once you have your lining, check your fit. If it does, tweak it as necessary.
Fold over your one inch extra allowance to create a cuff. Press this cuff. Fold under the flap lining to fit the flap and press this too.

Step 3: If you are using a zipper, place the lining into the bag. The  side of the zipper is sandwiched between the layer of lining bag. Pin the heck out of all three layers all the way around. Check the fit of your zipper and tweak as necessary, then sew just under the rim of the bag. I usually hand sew, catching only the inside loops of the crocheted part so the stitches are invisible from the outside.

If you're using a frog, measure and mark your frog placement.  Before sewing the lining into place, sew your frog to the bag, then just pin the lining in and sew around the rim to secure. I will try put pictures of the bag lining up when I do mine.
