Holiday purse

Holiday purse

Sometimes an idea I have swirling around in my head works out, sometimes it doesn’t.
This is one of those more satisfying occasions.

Well, I think so anyway.

Crochet and denim purse

The denim is from a skirt I’d had stashed for fabric for some time.

The lining is a piece I had left over from my swirly crochet cushion.Crochet and denim purse

The use of the crochet as a closure meant there was no need to insert a zip and so was a really quick make.Crochet and denim purse

I included some wadding between the denim and the lining to give the purse some substance.Crochet and denim purse

The button came from my huge button stash.Crochet and denim purse

I intend to use this on a holiday planned for this Easter. An evening purse just large enough to carry my phone, a lipstick and some money.

Of course last years make will be coming along too.

I hope those of you in the UK enjoyed some lovely warm sun today.

Doesn’t it restore your faith in the British climate!

About lovelucie1

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.

  11. I made something similar years ago (but I just added a lacy doily to an existing bag so nothing like a lovely as yours) I need to find it and start using it again – thanks for the inspiration! It’s been beautiful this weekend hasn’t it – I hope you were able to get out and enjoy it!

  26. Lovely Purse! I am actually quite jealous as I really would love to make one too, except that my sewing skills are close to zero!

  28. May I ask where you got the pattern for the crochet part from, or did you make it up yourself? X

    • I made it up as I went along but started by looking at crochet doily patterns on Pinterest. There are loads you could just copy. X

        I’ve been looking and can’t find any that suit the pattern I’m doing and this one looked lovely. I don’t want them to be too much of a solid circle so you last round is ideal (I’m just being picky!) x
