A woman’s purse is like a baby’s diaper bag. It contains everything she needs to get through her day, outside the comfort of home, and it does it all with style. It defines functional fashion.
A number of months ago I saw this super, awesomely sweet bag on Etsy, that I can no longer find. Yes, I should’ve just bought it but, if you saw my stash of unused yarn, I’m hanging my head in shame, I had to just make my own. Here’s a quick tutorial, that will only be helpful to you if you already know how to crochet (basic sewing experience is also helpful). I have to warn you this was quick and easy I’m sure there will be more in the future!
Wooden Handled Granny Square Purse
- Sewing the lining for the bag is pretty easy, there are many tutorials out there if you’re still unsure. Just make sure you square off your corners so that you get a nice flat bottom inside.
- Attaching the lining to the bag is easiest if you can machine sew it, BUT, be careful. I started to machine sew this bag’s lining and the stitches were too tight on the crocheted front and it just looked ugly so I opted to blanket stitch instead.
Wow, I just read through everything. What a lackluster tutorial, if it even qualifies as one. Sorry, but if you have any questions you can feel free to ask me!
