221  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Shoulder Purse on: March 28, 2011 09:48:38 AM
This was actually supposed to be a cardigan Cheesy. And it was supposed to be made for my sister by Christmas. But sadly I didn't make it in time Sad. So I decided I would finish the cardigan and give it to her for her birthday (March) instead. After the craziness of Christmas presents, though, I took about a month off of crocheting. When I got back to the project, and got to shaping the armholes, I got completely lost. I just couldn't figure out what the pattern (http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/aruna/aruna.html) wanted me to do!!! Then after much deliberation in my head, I decided not to finish Sad

But……….I didn’t really know what to do with this piece. I didn’t want to unravel it because the design was really pretty, so I decided to fold it and put it away until I was more experienced in making cardigans. I folded it in half and then ding!!!! I had an idea. “I will make it into a bag!!!!” :

I sewed a bow on the outside first then sewed a nice soft fabric ( I found in Hancock Fabrics) on the inside (I hand-sewed it with a color thread matching the color of the purse). Once that was done I folded the piece in half and sewed the edges except the top. My mom and I went to the Thrift Store to find the handle and after many "not the right color"s, we found it. The bad thing is that we had to buy the bag attached to it as well but that became a part of her gift too. Since I have no idea how to sew on a zipper, my mom did it for me instead. I didn't get to take a picture of it afterwards though. But in overall, I'm really happy on how this turned out Cheesy
