Mini Purse

by Linda

Yet another miniature purse. The other one I made was crocheted, too. This one is even smaller,
just big enough to hold a large pack of cigarettes (25), a few coins, maybe a lighter, and / or a
Kleenex(tm) or two.

Very easy and straightforward to make. Great for when


you're wearing a skirt, dress, or pair of shorts - and the lack
of pockets drives you nuts - like me! :) They're so small and
quick you can make one up easily in a couple of hours. Or
even make one to match every pocketless outfit you own if
you're so inclined.

You'll need:

• worsted yarn, about 50 grams (1 3/4 oz) (Check out


the selection of yarns at joann.com.)
• crochet hook in size which will produce a fairly
dense fabric, I used a 4.00 mm hook I think

1. Chain 20 or 21 sts.
2. Hdc in each ch along one side, plus an extra hdc in
last ch (to turn the corner).
3. Along the other side of the chain, hdc in each ch, plus an extra had in last ch (to turn
other corner). Do not slip stitch to join round!
4. Continue to work around and around in hdc til bag is long enough to cover the largest
item you want to put in it, then work one extra round, ending just before a corner (I think
I worked 17 or 18 rounds).
5. Work one round of sc, then 2 or 3 slip sts, then fasten off.
6. Take a nice long piece of yarn, maybe six to eight times the length needed to go from the
purse, up around your opposite shoulder, and back down to the purse again. Make a
twisted cord. Fold in half, attach one end under the tops loops of a sc at one side of the
purse. Try on for size, cut the cord the correct length and attach other end to other side of
purse.
7. Tada! All done.

• I made mine in vareigated cotton yarn, like Sugar'n Cream Cotton Ombre), it looks great!
In this case, choose the most attractive side to be the front, so you can choose to end your
final round on the back.
• To slightly increase or decrease the diameter of the bag, simply start with a few more or a
few less chains. After a few rounds, try it onto one end the item(s) you need to place in it.
If needed, rip it out and start over, changing the number of starting chains.
