When I was little, my grandma taught me to crochet a chain, and until recently that's about all I could do.  A lady at work's mother crochets, and she got me started on "real" crocheting, and I've been having a ball ever since.  Well they are moving, and instead of packing up her stash of half-used balls of yarn, she gave it to me! Score!

Included in the stash was an unfinished purse made of ribbon.  I forgot to take a before pic, but she had just made the outside of the purse and it was still laying flat.  I added a button, button loop, handle and lining.  I made the strap really long so I could be worn across the body, or tied in a knot and carried by hand or shoulder.

And just for fun, here's a cell phone pic of all the yarn she gave me!

That's a really pretty bag- I love the long handle- sooo useful!
Also, you lucky dog- that's a lot of yarn.  Shocked

In the end, only kindness matters.

Wow, that's really pretty. Awesome yarn, too.

I'm looking for Simplicity 6340 (the 1970's sailor dress). PM me if you've got a copy to swop or sell! Cheesy
