Hey, here are a couple of my early crochet projects. The first one is a patriotic red, white and blue head kerchief thing. It's just double crochet...the triangle shape is from adding an extra d.c. into the last d.c. of each row. I added two braids on either end of the top for straps.


The second one is my first attempt at a purse. I'm not keen on the peaches and cream look but I had the extra wool laying around. I didn't use a pattern or anything, I just sort of winged it. There's the two sides and the strap joined together on the outside with d.c. I had a little trouble attaching the ends of the straps. If anyone has tips on that, I'd love the help!


I've been using Patons First Steps in Crochet when I get stuck. I don't know if that helps.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by double crocheting the straps. Maybe this will help. Try crocheting the straps seperatley then use a yarn needle to sew them on with a whip stich.
Hope that helps.

P.S. They look good:)

i do the same for my purses except i use more of a slip stitch than a dc.  as for the strap part, if i see the pics right, you made the strap sorta into a loop, and then attatched the sides? so the strap is also the sides and the bottom?  if so just sl st the two ends together, i do that and place that part on the bottom.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll have to try that when I do my next one. Is it very difficult to add a flap? (I haven't been doing this very long...)

The picture does sort of look like a thong doesn't it? Lol.

nah, i just make one of the sides longer and that creates the flap on my purses. just make sure you take into account how wide the purse is so your flap doesn't come out too short and look somewhat odd.
