I love your design. Any chance you could post a tutorial?  Smiley

Thanks everyone!
I really suck at reading patterns, so telling exactly how I did it may be hard. I just made it up as I went. It is basically a long panel folded in half and stitched up the sides.
It is 40 half DC across, I made 2 rows then I just spaced enought for the handle for 1 row. I just kept making rows till it looked like it was the right size when I folded it and did the reverse for the other handle. I whip stithed up the sides.
I found the flower pattern somewhere online (I typed "easy crochet flower" into google and that was the first easy one I saw).
THe pattern is really similar to the one for the grocery bag purse.
I made a matching coin purse as well. I will post a pic later!

Very cute purse  Smiley
It makes me want to tackle one of my own; I've always been slightly intimidated by them for some reason, hehe.

What kind of yarn did you use? I wouldn't want to pick something that would be too flimsy and make the handles all floppy...

cute! I never really thought about crocheting a purse, I'll add this to my list of "things to crochet" thanks a lot, as if I needed one more project!!! Just kidding, I love it!

I dont know what weight the yarn I used was (I found a big bag of yarn at a thrift store with no labels), but it is kinda thick.
I used it when I went out Sat, held up really well. The handles streched a little but overall works really well. I got a lot of compliments on it. Lots of "OMG you made that".
I am working on another one now with a lighter weight yarn and a G hook and I think I will get the same results.

O.K. as soon as I saw the picture I wanted to tell you how really impressed I was. Then I read that you got the yarn from the thrift store.
Now I am impressed and jealous.

Jesus loves me, this I know.
