My mom's birthday is July 6th and we happen to be going to visit on that very day (we live in Tennessee and she lives in Mississippi with all the rest of my family). Anyway, I made these things for her. The little bag, I kind of altered a pattern for a clutch purse to make it smaller. It's meant to hold all her cards and cash and whatnot. I had to handsew all the lining (what a p.i.t.a.) and I scavenged the snap from one of my daughter's old purses. The lining is actually a double thickness and I cut it from an old pair of pants that don't fit anymore. I put 2 extra layers plus a layer of felt to reinforce where the snaps are so it won't stretch the crochet. The butterfly came from a pattern on crochetpatterncentral and I plan on putting it one of those frames that's 2 pieces of glass sandwiched together. Whaddya think?
For some reason, some of the parts are backwards. I don't know what I did wrong, but I don't think it's super noticeable.
