Like the teak purse, this one has been crocheted using DK weight yarn, which is slightly thicker than the 4ply yarn I've used for the others. This means the stitches appear a little larger. It was crocheted with the same 3.25mm sized hook as the other purses and the yarn is still mercerised so it has that sheen that many other yarns don't.
The process I used was also the same - crocheted the outer, then sewed on the beads individually, then handstitched on the double cotton lining, attaching the magnetic clasps along the way. Finally I made up the sides by sewing them togther. I have tried to make all seams virtually invisible.
This would be a cute and bright addition to any purse or accessory collection and would make a wonderful and 'sure-to-be-loved' gift. This purse is a one-off, as I've finished this yarn and it's unlikely I'll buy the same shade again as there are so many other shades and colours out there I'd like to try!
This purse takes between 12 and 15 hours to make.
Measurements: 12.5cm x 8cm
Care: machine washable upto 40°, although I cannot guarantee that the beads will remain in situ.
