Crocheted Butterfly Purse

Crocheted Butterfly Purse and Wallet

Pattern: JOVEN, Lisa’s Crocheted Butterfly, Chie Crochets Butterfly Pattern

Technique: Crochet with US H hook for the bag, US F hook for embellishments.

Yarn: Unnamed Pink Acrylic (4 oz); Patons Canadiana 00003 Black (3.5 oz); Patons Grace 60040 Black (1.75 oz)

Completed: November 2009

I designed this as I went along, which means that I’ll have to make another one in order to have a usable pattern. Basically the purse is crocheted in the round from the bottom up. The wallet is crocheted as a flat strip and then sewn down. The big black butterfly on the front of the purse and the small butterfly on the side were done in Patons Grace.

I haven’t knit or crocheted since the end of Februrary. I lost the hook I was using to make Mami’s Shawl, and I’ve been too busy to try and figure out where I left off on my unfinished projects. I am feeling the desire though, so once I’ve updated the site, I’ll try to make sense of those WIPs.

Mami’s Shawl, Finally!

Floral Shawl Pattern from Patons Summer Crochet

Floral Shawl Pattern from Patons Summer Crochet

I finally started this in September ’09. It is about two inches wider than in the photo now. My plan is to finish it by Solstice and give to my mother. When I showed her what I had so far she really liked it so I think she’ll be pleasantly surprised that it is intended for her.
