I used different colors to match and made an easy puffy purse/bag. all These different colors yarn i am not buying new for this purse, but I have an extra in my yarn basket, I always think about where and how I should use my extra some yarn so, I think in my mind that this idea is perfect to make a crochet small size pure for my own uses .I want to share you this idea how and where use the extra yarn for your regular using in home.you make anther things like crochet hats, crochet dresses, crochet tote, and
Before starting my project I was wondering how to add these yarn in my crocheted small purse, before starting I guess some pattern, I think this idea is perfect match for this purse/ bag.
Instructions: the pure I making in around, before starting make a foundation chain. And then work in it around both of the side in the foundation chain; mean working also into the opposite side. The pattern calls for the double crochet stitch. (3 double crochet) means, crochet 3 double crochet into same stitch. Skip or miss some stitches into the middle of the 3 double crochet groups.
You should always sew the lining inside the purse, cause of! It is to protect the yarn inside and your things also safe. I have no need the zipper for my purse but I wanted to give you the simple idea, how to sew the zipper to the lining. there are a lot of ideas inside the internet, I am not a perfect in the sewing work but Some time we want and like the work in my own hand so, it is a very simple idea specially I used always for my purse as I want to sewing the lining inside.
