Last year I ordered a few purse frame from one of my favourite online shop. But I was waiting a couple weeks to complete the first purses. Before Christmas I have already showed an Insta picture from my WIP purses. There was two simple designs and a granny one.
I am a bad blogger, I forgot to to take a picture from the finished granny purse I made for my sister-in-law. She was very happy about her gift :) This purse was a little bit bigger, made up to a 5" frame.
Now I would like to show the other two purses from closer to inspire you.
I used SMC Catania for all of my wallets. I think mercerized cotton yarn is the perfect choice when resistance is important. (I had some bad experience with wool blends in this field.)
The fuchsia (purple) one is also a bit bigger piece than a normal coin purse. The frame has silver color and so shiny. (On the third picture you can see me in the clasp...)
I don't have personal favourite, but if I would have, it would be this red one. Red is my all time favourite color and I love polka dots too. It is a smaller one, just 8 cm wide and approx. the same tall. The frame is embossed antique brass.
I lined my purses with cotton fabric for a better look. I really enjoyed crocheting these purses, it was easy after I found the right gauge, maybe sewing to the frame was the most challenging part.
Wish you happy crocheting!
You can find these purses in my shop.
