Crochet purse free pattern

After finishing the messenger bag for my son, and in the interest of fairness, I wanted to make something for my daughter.  She’s a little more, shall we say, fussy about the things I make; they need to be fashionable, not just made with any old yarn in any old colour.  I asked her what colour she wanted and she said “pink”. 

I used Sugar n Cream worsted 100% cotton yarn and a #4, 4.0 mm crochet hook.  I’ve included a domino so you can get an idea of the size.  Leave a long tail on your cast on stitch to sew the bottom together when you’re done.

Note of caution:  when you sew the bottom together make sure the seam is parallel with the handles, not perpendicular.

Here’s the pattern I used.
