This pretty pastel purple purse has been made entirely by hand, as have all of the purses available for sale here. The outer layer was crocheted first using 100% mercerised cotton, before handstitching on a layer of dark red and white floral-patterned cotton and affixing the magnetic clasps. The edges are then 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.
This purse took around 12 hours to complete.
Measurements: 13cm x 8.5cm
Care: machine washable upto 40°. Do not iron - press gently when dry (I usually use a book).
The frame and borders are not included with this item. The price includes taxes and UK postage and packaging. International shipping is available - email me on firstname.lastname@example.org with your region/country and I'll get back to you with a quote. International delivery fees will have to be paid for by the customer.
