Materials and notions:

I used a few colours of Drops Design cotton light

I used a smaller hook only a F (3.5mm) to make the fabric denser so I won’t need it to line it.

a 4 inch zipper

tapestry needle

matching sewing thread and needle

three wooden beads

Size:

4 inches in diameter (10 cm)

Abbreviations:

ch = chain

sc = single crochet

hdc = half double crochet

Purse Pattern:

Pattern note: the first ch2 of the round counts as the first st. Make the following crochet granny twice.

Round 1: ch2 and make 8sc on the second ch from the hook, and join with sl st to the first st, on this picture below you can see I have already pull the next colour as I am doing the sl st, I makes the changing colours a bit neater.

Once you have both parts of the purse, weave in any loose ends, using matching thread (do as I say not as I do!), start sewing the zipper, going around as you sew

Do the same with the other side

Now, this is very important! OPEN YOUR ZIPPER!, seriously open it! otherwise you will have a closed purse and you won’t be able to turn it and put your monies in it!, You can now use either the sewing thread or matching yarn and tapestry needle to close the rest of the bag, turn the bag (see!) and you are done!

To make the zipper pull, fold a length of yarn and pass it through the zipper eye and make a knot,

Thread the needle and pass through the beads, make a big knot to she beads don’t come off and cut the yarn.
