This simple black purse has been lovingly made by me, entirely by hand, as have all of the purses available for sale here. The crochet stitching is slightly different from the purses with beads. I crocheted the outer layer of the purse first, before sewing on the leaf motif. The leaf motif has been made using crochet thread. Then I sewed on a single lining of ivory-coloured cotton and affix the magnetic clasps. Finally, the edges are sewn up. I aim for all stitching to be virtually invisible. This would make a great addition to any accessory or purse collection, or a wonderfully unique gift.
The crochet yarn is 4-ply, meaning it is slightly thinner than standard Double Knitting [DK] yarn and the mercerising process means the cotton has a slight sheen to it - which is perhaps impossible to see with black yarn! I adapted the leaf pattern slightly; the original is available from mypicot.com
This purse takes approximately 13 hours to make.
Measurements: 10.5cm x 7.5cm
