One of my passions is purses. I love buying them and making them – although I really haven’t made that many. Here is one I made for a friend. It started out as a market bag but turned more into a book bag as I don’t think it’s really her taste to use it everyday. My idea was that it could be an extra travel bag. When we travel we always take backpacks and extra purses that hold anything from yarn to DVDs.

I created the bag without a pattern and am pretty pleased at how it turned out –

The lining has daisies on it so I made a detachable daisy for the outside of the bag. It’s made with cotton yarn – the only yarn I touch during summer. This has me inspired to make me my ultimate crochet purse that will hold everything when traveling. Oh to have one bag to rule them all would be wonderful.
