I found a purse like this down in Galveston while I was visiting, only it was crocheted with hemp and dyed. It was so cute and summery, but since summer is more than half over I decided to try one with yarn in a more autumn friendly color and this is how it turned out.



What do you think?

I would've put more dangles on it but only 15 dangles cost $3.99, so I spaced them out a bit and jazzed them up with some seed beads. I'm pretty proud of how it turned out. A bit of a different take on the hobo purses with all the sequins.

And if anyone is wondering, the inside is lined with white and black polka-dots and it closes with a black metallic snap.

Michael's has some gorgeous beads to dangle from purses. That's where I got my shell disks. But then again, shipping to England probably would make the beads outreageously priced. I hope you find something where you live.

I've also thought about putting pearls around the top and maybe the bottom... just an idea.

Little charms could be pretty cute, too, if you can find those for a decent price.

Good luck! And I'm glad you like the purse so much.

Very cool purse!  I bet you could get a similar effect with washers(little metal rings).  And I imagine they are a whole lot cheaper than 3.99 for 15...  Wicked cool!

Washers would look cool on a certain style of purse, but they are so heavy that I don't know if they would work well, which is also why I didn't use glass disks. But these shells weigh next to nothing, so they were perfect.

I  bought some skull beads on ebay just today and am going to try a dangle effect with those. I'm super excited for them to get here.
