Handy Handbag

A relatively new friend of mine, and I love her dearly (you know who you are), said she needed a small purse. Just big enough to carry keys, debit card, cigs and lighter. So I made her one. I had been crocheting baskets or birds nest and figured by altering my pattern a bit I could make her a purse. I used a purple heart shaped button for the closure, so I embellished it with small heart shaped charms on both the front and back of the purse. I used glass and wire beads on the fringe, and lined it with a colorful fabric. I had a lot of fun making this for her and may try my hand at making another one soon in a different color and different yarn.
