I’ve spent the better part of this week creating purses: coin purses, clutches and full size purses. And I. Can’t. Stop.
This, the newest of our crochet patterns, is absolutely gorgeous. The pattern is easy and versatile too! Use any size yarn you like (although I wouldn’t recommend mega bulky) with any fabric to line, and any zipper to match. Need help adding the lining and zipper? Never fear! We have a VIDEO tutorial for that right over here. ♥
Dragon Tears 3-in-1 Purse Crochet Pattern
My favorite part? I have decided to offer this pattern (including instructions to make all three sizes) for just $4.00! That’s kinda like paying $1.33 each, and very much like a totally awesome value. Even sweeter? When creating the largest of the purses, I stopped by Hobby Lobby with coupon in tow to select the perfect yarn, the perfect fabric and the perfect zipper. Not only is the pattern itself inexpensive, but the materials used cost me a whopping $7.87 after tax. Holla!
Whether you’re creating a clutch size to use yourself, or making it taller so that a little lady can use as a purse, you are sure to love this easy pattern. Do not let the look intimidate you, this is suitable for confident beginners and the lining and zipper is a breeze with this video AND photo tutorial!
