This is my first project posting on craftster... My mom gave me an annie's attic How to Free-form Crochet book for Christmas, and in it they had lots of motifs and a purse, which I rather liked... this is my modified version of it.  I'm not really big on freeform or crocheting bags, but I think it came out well.  A friend suggested I make it shorter than I had it at first and more of a clutch shape because she thought it would look nicer. I've done than and placed the button fastener lower.  Now I'm thinking about maybe putting a second button up higher so I can have a smaller clutch if I want or a larger bag if I need more space, but I haven't decided.  Sorry about the poor image quality (lame camera phone + shaky hands).

Your purse is cute.  It is very unique to me.

The purse is very cute!  I like the variation in textures with the different stitches and yarns

As skeptical as I was of freeform initially, it's actually really cool and when you get used to it very fun.  Even when I had lots of little bits and pieces I was sort of skeptical, but piecing it together and seeing how it lays out is a really incredible experience.  And it lets you use all the crazy little motifs and tidbits you find on the web and normally wouldn't have reason to use, especially if you don't make doilies or appliqus.  And I think purses are great ways to try it - they're small and allow more immediate gratification, and it seems a little more usable if you're not very rebellious in your general attire or decor.
